Kris Seymore

Elkhart Chief of Police Kris Seymore spoke Monday at the Elkhart Rotary Club, laying out how he plans to improve the department and earn the community’s trust.

ELKHART — A unified and safe Elkhart was the vision presented by newly appointed Chief of Police Kris Seymore at a Rotary meeting Monday.

To get there, Seymore wants a culture of professionalism, embracing the community, and holding officers accountable. There are no shortcuts, and it cannot be done in broad strokes, he said. It’s about doing the little things right.

Instead of Chief Seymore can we instead call him "The Commish"?
