Rising Sun PD to merge with Ohio County

Meeting held Monday night

(RISING SUN, Ind.) – The Rising Sun Police Department will merge with the Ohio County Sheriff's Office.


The measure became official during a meeting Monday night.


Last week, Rising Sun City Council voted to disband the police department. 


The department had three police officers, which raised concerns about the ability to provide law enforcement services 24 hours a day and seven days a week. 


The three officers each have an opportunity to join the Ohio County Sheriff’s Office.


The move was made official with support from County Council.
