Mayor to name police chief after 3 resignationsOctober 28, 2019
By The Associated Press
MICHIGAN CITY — The mayor of Michigan City will name a new police chief this week after the resignations of three senior officers.
Mayor Ron Meer says he'll hold a news conference Tuesday.
Police Chief Mark Swistek and assistant chiefs Royce Williams and Kevin Urbanczyk announced their resignations last week after a disagreement with the mayor over the Laporte County Drug Task Force.
Swistek says Meer directed him to end the department's participation in the task force. The mayor later apologized for what he said during a "private, heated discussion." He says he won't pull Michigan City out of the group.
Meer says he's been under stress since the arrest of a stepson on a drug charge.
The chief and assistant chiefs are expected to remain with the police department but in different roles.
