OLDENBURG, Ind. (WKRC) - An Indiana officer recently celebrated a milestone in his police service, celebrating 50 years of service.

Oldenburg Police Marshal Bill Dramann was joined by his family, community members, police officers from other agencies, and government officials, including Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, during Freudenfest on July 20 to mark his half-century achievement.

During the celebration, Dramann was recognized by Gov. Holcomb with the Circle of Corydon Award, which is one of the highest civilian honors one can receive in Indiana. Dramann was also presented with a plaque that depicts the badges of all the agencies he has work for in his career.

Dramann began his career in 1969 at the Batesville Police Department, where he rose to the rank of Chief of Police. After then serving two terms as the Ripley County Sheriff, Dramann worked with the Sunman Police Department for seven years.

Since 2014, Dramann has served as Town Marshal for Oldenburg, located approximately 50 miles west of Cincinnati.
