Greenwood Mayor-elect Mark Myers has named a police veteran with more than two decades of service as his new police chief.
Sgt John Laut currently serves in the department’s investigative division. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy and IUPUI.
On January 1, he will succeed current Chief Rick McQueary who will return to the rank of lieutenant.
Myers said he chose Laut due to his strong commitment to ethics and integrity. Last spring, Mayor Charles Henderson fired Chief Joe Pitcher for his mishandling of a police disciplinary issue.
