The Columbus Police Department welcomed their newest officer Tuesday morning.
Mayor Kristen Brown administered the oath of office to 24-year-old Ryan Heinz during the Board of Public Works and Safety meeting at city hall.
Heinz is a graduate of Ball State University and a member of the Indiana National Guard.
CPD Chief Jason Maddix says Heinz will take part in two weeks of in-house training before moving on to the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy for a few months. Maddix says that if all goes well, he hopes to have Heinz on solo patrol by November.
