Chief Deputy John Strange has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association. Chief Deputy Strange is only one of four chief deputy sheriffs from across the entire state that was appointed to the Board. Chief Deputy Strange will also serve on the Board’s committee for Communications and Technology. Sheriff Dave Wedding will serve on the Nominating Committee, Rules and Bylaws Committee, and the Legislative Advisory Committee. The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association was first established in 1930 to promote better communication and exchange information between the sheriffs and law enforcement personnel. The association provides training and educational programs for sheriffs and other law enforcement personnel. The association is a membership organization that is supported and funded entirely from membership dues, corporate sponsorships, advertising in The Indiana Sheriff magazine and donations.

Sheriff Dave Wedding stated, “Chief Strange’s knowledge and executive experience will be an asset to the Board as it is to our Office. Additionally, I am honored to have been asked to serve on these committees and I look forward to working with my fellow sheriffs to enhance the overall quality of service to the communities we have been elected to serve.”
