The City of Crawfordsville, Indiana

Small City... Big Possibilities

Police Department

The Crawfordsville Police Department (CPD) is comprised of forty one sworn officers, two clerical, a two-member meter department, and five crossing guards. Overseeing the department is the three member Metropolitan Board of Police Commissioners. These are citizens appointed by the mayor who conduct hiring and implement general personnel policies of the CPD.

The structure of our sworn staff consists of the following; Chief of Police, Assistant Chief, twenty nine uniformed patrol division officers, and five criminal investigators. All sworn officers are required to successfully meet the training requirements specified by the fifteen-week Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. Additionally, our department requires eight months of intense training prior to patrolling independently throughout our community. Officers must complete twenty-four hours of state approved training annually to retain their powers.

As recently as 25 years ago the CPD handled approximately 5,000 service calls annually. In 2005 these service call figures exceeded 23,000. To help offset this demand we are supported by a fifteen member reserve officer program made up of community volunteers. These volunteers assist with various tasks including parades, festivals, athletic events and routine patrols.

Probably whoevers truck it is?

The gifts were put in the back of the truck.. they dont belong to him, he is looking for who they belong to.. my guess is someone thought the truck belonged to someone else and was delivering gifts.. so who else drive a silver truck out there?? They could have been meant for them

Is he sure the gifts aren't for him? Glad he's doing the right thing, and finding the owners. ♡

Kim Keeling does LSC have a Facebook?

Anyone check with the security guard at the South plant?

Randy has a silver truck but it wasn’t his

Kimm Thompson Wheeler

North or South plant? If North plant, the silver truck is probably the maintenance shop truck.

Have you asked Santa?

Hope whoever the truck belongs to it's theirs and they are not stolen
