COVINGTON, Ky. - The City of Covington gained another police officer today, and this one has a familiar face. 

Jim Lindeman was sworn in today by Mayor Joe Meyer during a short ceremony in the Covington City Commission chambers.
Lindeman was a member of Covington’s police force from 1996 to 2006, when he left to work in the private sector. While in Covington, he worked as a detective and a SWAT negotiator. He also mentored new recruits as a decorated field training officer, where he was responsible for providing the final phase of training and evaluation before new officers were released to work independently.
“He’s back home now, and we’re very happy to have him back,” Covington Police Chief Rob Nader said. “He was a distinguished officer who won numerous awards, and we anticipate a lot of great things from him.”
Lindeman most recently worked as a security and compliance consultant for Convergys. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice from the University of Cincinnati.
