CANNELTON – A former chief of police who led Cannelton’s police force before resigning last year has been hired by the Perry County Sheriff’s Department.
Eric Dickenson was hired last week as a deputy and will begin work full time May 3. He fills a vacancy created when Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Shadwick was hired as a patrolman in Tell City.
Dickenson has worked as a part-time deputy for nearly two years.
