The Columbus Police Department has a new officer.
Logan Adams became the department’s newest officer when he was sworn in by Columbus City Attorney Alan Whitted during Tuesday morning’s Board of Public Works and Safety meeting at City Hall. Officer Justin Black, CPD spokesman, says that Adams is a 27-year-old native of Princeton, Indiana and a graduate of Gibson Southern High School. He adds that Adams attended the University of Southern Indiana before enlisting in the United States Army where he served for five years. During Adams’ tenure in the U.S. Army, he was assigned to the 75th Ranger Regiment and deployed to Afghanistan in 2013.
Black says that after a short in-house orientation period, Logan will be attending the 210th Class at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.
