Troy R. Jerrell






My name is Troy Jerrell. I was hired on the Linton Police Department in the capacity of an Officer in 1996 by then Chief Jack Watson. I was promoted to Sergeant Detective in 2001 by Chief McDonald and in 2002 I was promoted to Lieutenant Detective. That promotion made me second in charge of the Police Department since our Department no longer has a Assistant Chief position.

 Since I was hired, I have had the privilege of meeting many different people. I have also worked many interesting cases and have had the privilege of helping several people during this time. I enjoy my career as a Police Officer and I have to say that it is not only my personal, but Professional opinion that we now have one of the best Departments comparable to our size in the State.

As a Lieutenant Detective I am the lead Investigator in all Deaths in the Linton Area. So far I have worked several Homicides and numerous other deaths. I have also solved numerous cases including the “Petro Tire Building Fire” which burnt two of our larger buildings down in the Downtown area with cost estimated over a million dollars.

I am also a certified Polygraph Examiner for the Department. I went to a two month residential school in California for this certification. Since then I have ran numerous test and helped solve numerous cases for the Department and surrounding Agencies.

As the Newly appointed Chief of Police I intend to work hand in hand with the public. Most State statutes and laws are design and set up for Police in general to be reactive against crime. One of my goals as being Chief is to transform our way of policing to being proactive within state and federal limitations. In other words I intend for the Linton Police Department to promote methods that detour crime from happening. One way is by educating the public and keeping them up to date on the current crimes and methods used by the criminal element. In doing so I believe the public will be better equipped to help prevent themselves from being victims and making it harder for the would be criminal to take advantage of them.

Below you will see what certifications and experience I have been able to obtain during my years as a Police Officer.
