Bartholomew County Sheriff Matt Myers has announced a number of promotions at the jail that took effect this week. They are:

Lieutenant Tyler Stillabower has been promoted to Captain (Deputy Jail Commander).
Sergeant Kaleigh Morey has been promoted to Lieutenant (Jail Operations)
Shift Sergeant Tim Burdine has been promoted to Transport Supervisor
Shift Sergeant Steven Reed has been promoted to Field Training Supervisor
Officer Donald Tooley has been promoted to Shift Sergeant
Officer Johnny York has been promoted to Shift Sergeant.

“Although our Correctional employees are civilian, not merit employees, they represent one of the most important components of our criminal justice system.” “It is their responsibility to ensure the safety and welfare of our inmates,” said Sheriff Myers.

“These officers have the experience they need for their new positions and I am pleased that they have accepted the opportunity to expand their leadership skills,” said Jail Commander Major John Martoccia.

Sheriff Myers says his goal is to have civilian employees overseeing all operations within the jail within the next few years.
