Applicants vie to become next IPAC director

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

A four-person search committee continues reviewing applications of individuals who have expressed interest in becoming the next Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council director. About 20 people have applied to take over the post after the agency’s current leader, Stephen Johnson, retires Aug. 1.

The application deadline was in early July, and the review process continues, according to Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill, a member of the panel.

The other committee members are Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson, Dearborn-Ohio County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard, and Grant County Prosecutor Jim Luttrull.

Committee members plan to make a recommendation to the full IPAC board by mid-August. The IPAC board has no set timetable to make a decision. Hill said that prior to the selection of a new executive director, second-in-command Suzanne O’Malley will temporarily fill that administrative role.

The search for his replacement has been ongoing since Johnson announced his retirement in mid-May. He has served as director since 1997 and has been with IPAC since before it became a state-funded agency in 1974. The position offers salary up to $125,000 depending on experience, and the person selected would be responsible for all IPAC operations as well as representing Indiana’s 91 prosecutors before the Indiana Legislature. The executive director also acts as a liaison to the governor’s office, law enforcement agencies, and various boards and organizations.
