Former Sheriff Recognized for Helping Youth

(Brazil, IN) - Former LaPorte County Sheriff John Boyd has received a high honor.  Boyd is among the first six members of a new Sheriff’s Wall of Fame at the Indiana Sheriff’s Youth Ranch in downstate Brazil.


Boyd was honored for his leadership during the planning, purchasing and opening of a not for profit center on 62 acres near Terre Haute.  The Indiana Sheriff’s Youth Ranch is for future law enforcement officers, at-risk children and others including victims of crime.  The facility reached out to over 1,500 youth last year.


Boyd, who recently completed his second and final year as sheriff, became a charter member of the youth ranch board in 2016.


“Sheriff Boyd’s positive attitude helped keep us making progress when many organizations simply made excuses or gave up entirely,” said ISYR Executive Director Scott Minier.
