ELKHART — Lt. Carl Conway, facing a disciplinary proceeding this week to remove him from the ranks of the Elkhart Police Department, has resigned, according to a news release from the department.

Conway’s resignation was unexpected and not the product of any agreement with the chief of police, Police Merit Commission or mayor, the release said.

Yep, another cop gets to resign and get a full pension and ride off into the sunset or worst, join another department…while the city and tax payers will be held accountable after the lawsuit for how many millions? Time to make the police pension pay for insurance to cover the cost of lawsuits brought on by police officers . Time to make cops that resign to escape punishment pay for their crimes… garnish his pension and put him on a payment plan


The cop needed to go. This is good news, even at a cost!
