A former jailer and two newcomers to the Columbus area recently were sworn in as new deputies with the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department.
Brent Worman, 30, has worked as a corrections officer at the Bartholomew County Jail since 2010. The Greene County native, who earned an associate’s degree in criminal justice, graduated from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy in March.
After being promoted to the position of merit deputy, Worman began his field training with veteran officers earlier this year. He is expected to complete this training in July.
Adam De Both, 22, a native of Cedar Lake, and Adam Warner, 22, who grew up in Rising Sun, began their first day with the department April 13.
Both received bachelor’s degrees in criminal justice from Indiana University on May 4, and worked a year as officers with the IU Police Department as they were earning their degrees.
De Both and Warner are expected to complete their field testing and become full deputies in August.
