Farewell to a Life in Law Enforcement

(La Porte County, IN) - A man employed by the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office for nearly a half-century has retired. The retirement of David Spence was announced today by La Porte County Sheriff John Boyd.


“I publicly congratulate David on his recent retirement. He faithfully served the citizens of La Porte County for 44 years, and he and his family made many sacrifices along the way and throughout his career,” Boyd said.

Spence began as a jail deputy and was later promoted to the patrol division, where he worked for 19-years.


In 1999, Spence was transferred to the Warrants Division, where he completed various tasks, including the extradition of wanted persons. He then accepted a civilian position with the sheriff’s office.  Spence verified the residency requirements of registered sex offenders and served civil papers when he retired.


“Thank you, David. Enjoy retirement!” Boyd announced.
