The Town of LaPaz is pleased to announce the hiring of a new police officer.  Bruce Gadziola started on Monday as the result of the Town of LaPaz obtaining a 3-year grant with an obligation to fund the position for another year. 

Officer Gadziola grew up in Muncie and graduated from Notre Dame with a history degree with the intention of going to law school.  He started his law enforcement career in 1988 as a reserve officer for the Town of Bremen and in 1990 became a full-time police officer for Bremen.  He retired from the Bremen Police Department in October 2013 and went to work as an officer at Notre Dame.  After 5 years at Notre Dame, he retired and has done other jobs until this opportunity presented itself.

Officer Gadziola is married and has 2 kids and lives in Plymouth.  

Officer Gadziola can be contacted by calling the LaPaz Police Department at 574-784-7065 or via email at
