At least three veteran Indiana State Police troopers are leaving the agency as they take office as county sheriffs.
State police officials have announced the departures of Sgts. Jerry Goodin, Daniel Mawhorr and Max Weber, who all won November elections to become sheriffs beginning Tuesday.
Goodin joined the state police 27 years ago and has been the Sellersburg district’s public information officer since 2004. He’ll lead the Scott County Sheriff’s Department in southern Indiana.
Mawhorr is a 25-year state police veteran and won election as sheriff of northeastern Indiana’s Adams County. He has supervised troopers in Blackford and Jay counties.
Weber is ending a 30-year state police career and has supervised troopers in Noble, LaGrange and DeKalb counties of northeastern Indiana. He won the Noble County sheriff’s election.
