William Nevill was officially sworn in as a new department deputy by Clay County Clerk of the Circuit Court Vickie Wheeler.
Nevill, originally from West Terre Haute, has worked as a reserve deputy with the department for approximately one year.
He is one of 12 deputies for CCSD. Nevill will replace Deputy Casey Judge, who left the department in November.
Nevill will begin the field training stage with the department immediately. From there, he will attend the Indiana State Police Academy in August for further training.
Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton said after Nevill completes the training, he would then have to complete four additional phases, including case law, policy procedure, traffic and familiarize himself with Clay County.
