City of Anderson Donates Police Car to Ivy Tech Community College
Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr., Chief Tony Watters and the City of Anderson Police Department donated a surplus city police car that became available as a result of the recent replacement of the aging police fleet with new 2017 Ford Interceptor police cars. The donation was made in order to allow an upgrade in the criminal justice program that Ivy Tech is currently implementing into their curriculum.
Kathryn Loving is new to the community and just started as a Criminal Justice Professor at Ivy Tech in Anderson. She said, “This is a great opportunity to bring realism into the classroom and educate not only as far as criminal justice goes, but also make it a real experience for the students. This is a wonderful opportunity for all of them.”
Dr. James Willie, Chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College expressed his support of the City programs and thanked the city for this opportunity. Dr. Willie explained that Ivy Tech as a community college has its primary focus on making its educational opportunities available to all citizens in order for them to obtain the education they need to secure good paying jobs in our community.
Mayor Broderick stated, “The City of Anderson appreciates the work Ivy Tech Community College does for our community. One of Anderson’s main goals is to create job opportunities for our citizens. Ivy Tech has been a great partner of our manufacturers and employers in the city. Ivy Tech is a great place to get an exceptional and affordable education. We are excited about this new program that will provide an opportunity to receive a quality education in criminal justice.”
