Who's in charge here?

Even in Indianapolis, home of the dreaded UniGov, not everyone is an enthusiastic supporter of consolidated government. It's worth noting that the sheriff seems more opposed to the interim committee than consolidation itself. The General Assembly gave its permission for the merger of city and county police, but the office of sheriff is a constitutionally mandated one, so the sheriff would end up in charge of the consolidated police departments. One more wrinkle to consider in talks about charter government here.
