Star City Police Department
When the town was incorporated in 1907, the first act of the new mayor was to appoint a "Special Policeman".
This Special Policeman, John Deusenberry, was the basis for what has become the current Star City Police Department.
As the needs of the town have changed, the police department has changed with them, always with the ultimate goal
of protecting the town and its citizens.
The current police department consists of six full-time officers, one part-time officer, and one canine. These officers provide police protection 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
Chief Vic Propst has been a police officer for 25 years, working as a Mon County Sheriff's Deputy and as a part-time officer for Star City before taking on the position of Chief in April 2006. Under his guidance, the department has applied for and received numerous grants to offset operating costs. One of those grants, from the US Department of Justice, covers the salary of one officer, a considerable savings for the town. Another grant subsidized the purchase of new bulletproof vests to protect each of the officers. He encourages all officers in continuing their education, providing opportunities for training in areas of interest to each individual officer.
