The fatal shooting of a Gary police officer early Sunday closely followed the death of an Indianapolis police officer. It is a time to mourn the loss of these two officers, but also to look for responses to these two incidents and other attacks on police officers.
As if enough hasn’t been said, I’d like to weigh in on Lake County’s 911 debacle.
MICHIGAN CITY | Indiana conservation officers plan to resume an underwater sonar search Monday for a Chicago man who went missing Saturday night in Lake Michigan north of Mount Baldy.
INDIANAPOLIS | Three Lake County cities are among the first in the state to benefit from Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann's Blight Elimination Program.
INDIANAPOLIS | State Sen. Jim Merritt, R-Indianapolis, is eager to spread the word to college students, and all Hoosiers, about new additions to Indiana's innovative Lifeline Law — once it's signed by Republican Gov. Mike Pence.
INDIANAPOLIS | Cities and towns across Indiana, including several region communities, are one signature away from losing their ability to vigorously regulate rental properties within their borders.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mike Pence has requested federal grants to cover a portion of the local snow removal and public safety expenses incurred by 49 Indiana counties — including Lake, LaPorte, Newton and Jasper — during the Jan. 5-9 severe winter storm.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled Indiana Senate acted on 70 legislative proposals Tuesday, the final day for senators to approve or reject plans that previously were passed by the Republican-controlled House.
MICHIGAN CITY | Rescuers steadily walked across Lake Michigan on Wednesday evening, the creaking and cracking of ice echoing through the dark night.
SCHERERVILLE | Town leaders are examining what it will take to build two new modern fire stations in Schererville.
INDIANAPOLIS | Legislation that could have shuttered every abortion clinic in Indiana was rewritten Wednesday by three female Republican state senators to instead focus on patient safety.
Northwest Indiana has entered a new era of regional cooperation when it comes to police work. It's paying off.
MUNSTER | The Munster Town Council has created a fund for its share of Lake County income tax revenues required to be spent on public safety.
The Gary Police Department has made a number of changes since the state review ordered by Gov. Mike Pence. That's good for the department, and good for the city.
EAST CHICAGO | Residents near 145th Street and Baring Avenue were evacuated for four hours Monday during the city’s latest gas leak.
For more than a year, members of the One Region Public Safety Committee have been meeting to collectively assess and evaluate law enforcement functions within Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties.
HOBART | Three women and a man from East Chicago stole televisions, microwaves and linens from a Hobart motel room they occupied, police said.
Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson asked Indiana Gov. Mike Pence for help in cleaning up the city's crime problem. What she received instead was help in cleaning up the police department.
GARY | Staffing deficiencies, a pervasive lack of respect for authority and low confidence in command are plaguing Gary Police Department operations, a state report culling department employees' views concludes.
Let us once more make this clear to officials throughout Lake County: E911 consolidation must happen, and it must happen before the Dec. 31, 2014, deadline.
