New Marshal in New Carlisle

(New Carlisle) -

New Carlisle has a new town marshal.

David Combs assumed the role last week. Combs brings over 23 years of law enforcement experience to the position, most recently as the town marshal of Kingsford Heights.

Town councilman Jordon Budreau says they interviewed seven candidates before settling on Combs. "After our interviews with him, we felt he was the guy for the job," says Budreau."He's a great guy. Honestly, he's got that personality that you want a small town police chief to have. He's approachable. New Carlisle is like Mayberry. Having a police chief that puts out that presence goes a long way."

Combs takes over a department that has seen the sudden departure of two police chiefs in the past several years. Former chief Cal Ditmar retired abruptly a few months ago.

The department is also looking for two full-time patrol officers to fill out their police staff.
