The Sheriff’s Merit Board approved the promotion of Dan Roudebush to Detective Lieutenant. Lieutenant Roudebush has served in Law Enforcement for the last 27 years. He is the Commander of our SWAT Team, Firearms Instructor and Defensive Tactics Instructor, amongst his many other duties.
Court Service Officer Bob Mitchell was sworn in as a Special Deputy. Officer Mitchell serves as part time assistance to the courthouse and participates in our Motor Patrol Program. Mitchell is a retiree from Westfield Police Department and served many years on the Frankfort Police Department, as a K9 Handler.
Sheriff Kelly has began a new collaboration with Clinton County Community Corrections Director Brett Barton. Officer Nick Hillman was sworn in as a special deputy as he will begin training to be a future K9 Handler. Hillman will receive his training from our K9 Sergeant Joey Mitchell, as Mitchell completed his certification last year to become an instructor. We are excited to have Community Corrections join our team of local Law Enforcement K9s as it is another tool in combatting narcotics in our neighborhoods.
