KPD Hires Three Reserves
January 28, 2009 - During a brief special meeting last week, the Knightstown Town Council approved the addition of three new reserve officers for the Knightstown Police Department.
Acting on a recommendation from Chief of Police Danny Baker, the council OK'd Chris Groce, Doyle Richardson and Carlo Moore for the non-paying reserve positions. Immediately prior to the Jan. 22 special meeting, the council met privately in executive session to interview the three men.
Baker had told the council the week before during the council's regular monthly meeting that he hopes to eventually have as many as 15 reserve officers. He said the reserve officers, who have to complete a basic training course, are required to buy their own equipment, with the KPD furnishing shoulder patches and badges.
In other police business, Baker told the council at their Jan. 15 meeting that some of his officers have an opportunity to work for a private security firm run by a member of the Henry County Sheriff's Department.
He said the officers would wear their KPD uniforms, but will not use the departments patrol cars. He also said the security firm will assume all liability for the officers. Council members told Baker that as long as KPD cars are not used, there is no problem with the officers accepting this outside employment.
Baker also reported that all equipment for the department's new dispatch system had arrived. He said he hoped everything would be up and running by the end of the month.
