What's Happening at The Porter County Sheriff's Department


Lakeshore Public Radio

Sheriff David Lain is proud to announce the return of

The Porter County Sheriff’s Department

to providing information via a mass-media format.



Lakeshore Public Radio (WLPR, 89.1 FM) has included a segment during their 4pm – 6pm

“Lakeshore Drive” program to allow the Sheriff to disseminate information concerning current law enforcement issues throughout the region.

The Sheriff also plans on highlighting events and accomplishments of northwest Indiana’s non-profit organizations during the show.

“Many worthwhile non-profits lost the opportunity to be heard when the

Sheriff’s Department’s Behind the Star program was dropped from cable television in 2007”

said Sheriff Lain. “We have been hoping to find an outlet so that we can regain the connection we had with the community.

Thankfully Lakeshore Radio believes as we do that its audience is well served by this kind of programming.”


The Sheriff can be heard every Monday afternoon at approximately 4:10pm

along with the hosts of Lakeshore Drive, Len Clark and Leigh DeNoon.



The Sheriff’s Department is seeking a sponsor for the segment. Please contact the Sheriff at 477-3112 if you would like to support this effort.
