South bend Police now have a new chief of the investigative division.
Captain Rick Bishop will take over the division soon after the start of the year.
The 30 year veteran takes over for division Chief Eugene Kyle who is retiring.
Chief Kyle has worked in the South Bend Police Department for 35 years and steps down on January fifth.
“I think inheriting the foundation that Chief Kyle has laid, he will put his own brand on the investigations division and continuing moving forward to better serve this community,” explains Chief Thomas Fautz, South Bend Police Department.
Captain Bishop has also served in the detective bureau, the juvenile division, and the city's SWAT team.
