The History of the Whitestown Police Department Motorcycle Unit
We are a new municipality formed in 2009 .. The Town of Whitestown has been around since 1851, however they were only a 1.3 sq mile town and had only a town Marshall and 1-2 deputy marshals since its inception. In 2009 the Town expanded thru annexation, restructured and has now grown to over 50 sq miles and we have 29 officers and are growing bigger every year. We are classified now as a metropolitan police department by the State of Indiana. Whitestown Police Department developed a Motor Unit this year 2013.
The department sent 4 officers thru the Northwestern Basic Motor Officers Course. The Whitestown PD is hoping to purchase two more units in fiscal year 2014.
