A message from the Sheriff

Sheriff William Redman

I began my career in 1994 with the St. Joseph County Police Department as a Special Deputy while working in the St. Joseph County jail. In 1995, I was promoted to the rank of Probationary Patrolman and successfully graduated from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy in 1995 (Class 95-120).

In 1996, I began working as a patrol officer and was assigned to different patrol beats throughout St. Joseph County. In the Fall of 1997, I was asked by Sheriff Speybroeck and his administration to become a D.A.R.E. Officer. I began teaching in the PHM School Corporation. At that time, there were a total of nine schools taught by myself and another officer.
