Gary Police Chief Resigns, New Chief Named

Share Tweet Email

Gary Police Chief Wade Ingram reportedly resigned last week.

The Lakeshore’s Hilary Powell reports from City Hall that Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson named 15-year veteran Deputy Chief Larry McKinley as Ingram’s successor  and a former deputy chief, retired Captain Thomas Papadakis, as the new deputy police chief.

The announcement came at City Hall Monday morning, as the mayor said the city is experiencing a series of what the mayor called  “heinous crimes,” including the July 6th shooting death of on-duty Patrolman Jeff Westerfield.
