Personnel, vehicle changes at BPD

February 18, 2011

The Bremen Police Department is used to trading in its used vehicles for new ones, which it will soon do with two within its six-vehicle fleet. However, it isn't accustomed to the simultaneous staff turnover it currently faces.

Dispatcher Laverne Replogle retired Feb. 17 after 17 years between the BPD and the Marshall County Sheriff's Department 911 center. Barb Capron, the department's dispatch supervisor, will retire Feb. 28 after 28 years of service.

Capron's position will be filled in-house by Melinda Daily, a radio operator of 23 years who will move from Class B to Class A.
