LEBANON, Ind. — The city of Lebanon has a new Chief of Police.

Chad Morgan is the city’s new police chief after being appointed by Mayor Matt Gentry.

He replaces Tyson Warmoth, who was removed from the role and demoted on Friday.

Chief Morgan joined the Lebanon Police Department in 1994.

“I love the Lebanon Police Department and I love this community,” he said Monday.  “I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to lead this department, and I am excited to begin this new journey.”

In 2018, Chief Morgan earned the Medal of Bravery and was named Officer of the Year for his actions on March 2, 2018 during the pursuit and shooting that claimed the life of Boone Co. Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Pickett. 

“Chad is someone who has been dedicated to the department, carrying himself with the utmost dignity for nearly three decades,” said Mayor Gentry. “I am confident Chief Morgan will do a great job leading the department and will serve our city honorably.”

Chief Morgan begins his new role immediately.
