GARRETT, IN – Garrett Police Chief Roland McPherson has been asked for his resignation.
City officials in Garrett cited “performance-related issues” stemming from a 2020 death investigation.
In March, the DeKalb County prosecutor claimed that a 2020 death investigation was “significantly compromised” because police in Garrett didn’t follow protocol.
Since Chief McPherson’s termination, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Gerald Kline will reportedly be the next Garrett police chief. Kline is currently a School Resource Officer for Garrett-Keyser-Butler Schools and will finish the school year before a swearing-in ceremony on June 7th.
