Articles About new officers
Officer John Whittemore arrived at the YSPD from West Carrollton a little over three weeks ago.
The three newcomers join officers Patrick Roegner, Naomi Penrod, David Meister, Brian Carlson and Tom Sexton. Part-time officers include retired veterans Dennis Nipper, Al Pierce and Doug Andrus (who is currently on leave), with occasional support from Tom Knickerbocker.
The Yellow Springs Police Department typically fields a team of eight full-time and a half dozen part-time officers. Currently, there are six full-time officers and less than three active part-time officers, many of whom are being stretched to their limit and are often asked to cover shifts alone.
