GOSHEN — A Goshen man is among the eight newest Indiana Conservation Officers after officially joining the Department of Natural Resources Division of Law Enforcement.

The new officers went through five weeks of basic training, followed by 12 weeks of on-the-job field training with a veteran officer. They will now have to complete a 15-week course at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, after which they will report to assigned locations to complete a one-year probationary period.

Vander Molen has been assigned to Kosciusko County.
