SWSC Creates Police Department, Appoints Chief

SULLIVAN, IN—The Southwest School Corporation has appointed Jim Dotson as Chief of Police for its newly-created police department.  Chief Dotson is a Certified School Resource Officer and Advanced School Resource Officer through the National Association of School Resource Officers. He brings many years of law enforcement experience to his role, having recently retired from the Indiana State Police after 25 years of service.

The goal of the SWSC Police Department is to provide increased safety and security measures for the students and staff. Over the course of the next several months, Chief Dotson and SWSC administrators will work to establish a fully-functioning police department that will offer consistent, daily coverage at each building and a point of contact for security across the district.

The SWSC Police Department is made possible in part through the Secured Safety Grant funded by the Indiana Department of Homeland Security.
