Prosecuting Attorney Brian Gensel is announcing that he will seek a fourth
term in office.
Gensel released the
following statement on Friday: “The criminal justice system in Porter County
and the Porter County Prosecutor’s Office are well-respected in Northwest
Indiana and throughout the entire state. As an executive board member of the
federal High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) taskforce, I have
developed strong relationships with local, federal, and state law
enforcement agencies. The child support division of my office excels in
holding parents financially accountable. My philosophy has always been that
prosecutors and police should work together as a team to keep the citizens
of Porter County safe. My dedicated senior prosecutor staff has over 100
years of combined experience. I believe that I have earned the trust of the
citizens of Porter County and hope that I may continue to serve them as
served as Chief Deputy Prosecutor under former Prosecutor James Douglas in
the latter’s 29th year in office.
