White Pigeon police chief retires

A 21-year veteran with the White Pigeon Police Department retired last week.
Chief Lynn “Dutch” Baker, who held the department’s top position for 20 years, worked his final shift Friday.
Baker said he especially enjoyed working with the younger officers who have come through his department.
Another milestone under Baker was the creation of a drug fund that led to the K- 9 program.
A ceremony to honor Baker took place, providing village president Dan Czajkowski (chy-COW-skee) an opportunity to acknowledge Baker’s years of service. In addition, Czajkowski used the occasion to announce the promotion of Sgt. Bill Burgoyne to chief.
Burgoyne has been a part of the White Pigeon Police Department for nearly 20 years.
