A manpower shortage has pushed Rising Sun police chief Chip Peterson to think about things a little differently.
The chief said last week that he is considering hiring part time officers to bolster the full time service currently provided by department veterans George Vanaskey, Stephen McKinney, and Daniel Stickney.
Officer Dallas Herbert, who began working in the town December 31, 2013, is no longer on the force. No announcement has come regarding his departure. Sgt. Chris Tserkis also left within the last several months. Tserkis was with the department from August 2015 until March of this year.
