Police Chief Dave Cincoski made Distinguished Hoosier

Back To Front Page



Chesterton Police 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.

The citation: “Office of the Governor, Eric J. Holcomb, To all to whom these presents may come, Greetings:

“Whereas, some individuals distinguish themselves through significant contributions to their communities;

“Whereas, the qualities and characteristics of such individuals reflect the best of the great State of Indiana;

“Whereas, the actions of these individuals endear them in the hearts and minds of all Hoosiers; and

“Whereas, the 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.”

“Done this 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.

Member Jennifer 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 Commission

In other business, members voted unanimously to appoint Jeff Hornyak to the vacant seat on the Police Commission.

The council’s 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 for

Police Commission Meetings

Meanwhile, Cincoski 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.
