(Michigan City, IN) - Michigan City’s police department is adding new officers to its ranks.
Four new officers were sworn in earlier this week. They are Douglas Abraham of Valparaiso, Kane Fletcher of La Porte, Maximiliano Hernandez, a New Prairie graduate, and Brock Moore, who is originally from Michigan City but is moving back to the area from Winfield.
The new officers were chosen from 30 candidates. They will train in-house for six weeks before beginning field training and the 15-week Indiana Police Academy.
This brings Michigan City’s police force up to 76 officers, eight short of a full department.
