Chief Dave Cincoski has just concluded his term as president of the Indiana
Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).
But at the IACP’s
mid-winter conference earlier this month, Cincoski wasn’t merely presented
with a gavel and plaque to mark his service to the organization.
He was, instead,
made a Distinguished Hoosier by Gov. Eric J. Holcomb.
“Office of the Governor, Eric J. Holcomb, To all to whom these presents may
individuals distinguish themselves through significant contributions to
qualities and characteristics of such individuals reflect the best of the
great State of Indiana;
actions of these individuals endear them in the hearts and minds of all
below-named individual is such a person who has earned the respect and
admiration of Hoosiers across the state and is worthy to join the ranks of
those so honored:
“Now, therefore, I,
Eric J. Holcomb, Governor of the State of Indiana, do hereby declare and
appoint David Cincoski as a Distinguished Hoosier.”
twenty-second of January in the year 2020.”
So Town Manager
Bernie Doyle read at the Town Council’s meeting Monday night, after noting
that, as Cincoski has never been one to pat himself on the back, it is right
and proper that others should do it for him. “Chief Cincoski, being the
person he is, doesn’t go around bragging.”
Member Bob Allison,
D-3rd--the council’s liaison to the CPD--took a moment at the end of the
meeting to express his profound appreciation to Cincoski as a police
officer, administrator, and public servant.
Fisher, I-5th, concurred. “I want to personally congratulate Police Chief
Cincoski on his honor,” she said. “Your service is greatly appreciated.”
Appointed to Police
In other business,
members voted unanimously to appoint Jeff Hornyak to the vacant seat on the
original appointment, Bob Aponte, resigned shortly after being tapped, on
concluding he didn’t have the time to devote to the seat.
Same Day, New Time
reported to the council that the Police Commission, at its January meeting,
voted unanimously to change the regular meeting time to 5 p.m.
For many years the
commission has met at 6 p.m.
The meeting day,
however, will remain the same: the second Thursday of the month.
The commission will
next meet at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13.
