The Winamac Town Council members were introduced to a new member of the Police Department when they met Monday night.
Town Marshal Mark Hoffman received permission to hire Officer Matt Scott during May’s Town Council meeting. Council President Tom Murray inquired about Scott’s experience.
He replied, “I worked part-time for Wheatfield PD and I worked for Tippecanoe County.”
Scott noted that he’s also already received academy training. Murray asked him if he’s started working with the Department yet. Scott noted that he has and he’s been working the noon to midnight shift so far.
