Longtime Decatur police chief to retire
A long and distinguished career in law enforcement will formally come to an end June 27, the last day on the job for Decatur Police Chief Ken Ketzler.
Ketzler, current vice president of the Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police, began with the department as a patrolman and worked his way up to chief, being appointed by former mayor Fred Isch. Before joining the department, he was a member of the Adams County Sheriff’s Department.
In 2011, the IACP awarded Ketzler its William Sudbury Memorial Leadership Award, given to those who “most consistently exemplify the highest standards of leadership.”
