Chief of Police Troy Bacon retires after 21 years with Frankfort Police Department

Today, Chief Troy Bacon retires from the Frankfort Police Department after 21 years of service to the City of Frankfort.

Chief Bacon started his career with FPD in July 1998 and served as a patrol officer, Sergeant, and Lieutenant before being appointed Chief of Police in 2012. Throughout his career, he served as a Field Training Officer, a member of the Bike Patrol, SWAT Team Commander, and an instructor with the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.

In 2003 Chief Bacon was recognized with a Frankfort Police Department award for Bravery. He received a Community Service Award from Primera Iglesia Bautista in 2018, a Committed Service Award from the NAACP Branch #3056 in 2019, and a Community Partnership Recognition Award from the NAACP Branch #3056 in 2020.

Chief Bacon has been an asset to the Frankfort Police Department and the City of Frankfort and has served with honor for more than two decades. As our Chief, he has been instrumental in modernizing our department over the last eight years. We have made great strides in areas of policy revisions and implementation, employee retention and recruitment, equipment and vehicle purchases as well, and we are on our way to a new police department building.

Please join us in congratulating Chief Bacon on his retirement!
