A longtime police officer with the Warsaw Police Department will be retiring from the department effective at the end of May.

Chief Scott Whitaker announced on Friday that Sergeant Gregory Oberlin will be retiring after 23 years of service with the WPD. Oberlin began his career with Warsaw on January 4th, 1997.

Oberlin served as a Patrol Officer until being promoted to Corporal in January 2009 and then to Sergeant in November 2009.  In March 2010, Oberlin was assigned to the Detective Division until returning to the Patrol Division in June 2012, as the third shift Sergeant and shift commander.  He served as WPD’s Citizen Academy Coordinator from 2000-2018.  Sergeant Oberlin has been assigned to Warsaw Community Schools as a School Resource Officer for the past 6 years.

“I would like to personally thank Sgt. Oberlin for his 23 years of service to the Warsaw Police Department and the Warsaw Community. It is unfortunate that we are unable to celebrate his retirement with his family and the community at this time. On behalf of WPD, I would like to wish Greg the best of luck with his future endeavors.  He will undoubtedly be successful in whatever it is he chooses to pursue,” Whitaker said.
