(Rising Sun, Ind.) - Plenty of goodbyes will be said today for Rising Sun Chief of Police David Hewitt.

The 49-year-old died in a crash last week.

Hewitt’s visitation will happen Tuesday from 2:00 until 7:00 p.m. at Rising Sun High School. All are welcome to pay their respects.

The funeral service will be held Wednesday starting at 11:00 a.m. at the school.

To accommodate the services, Rising Sun-Ohio County Schools will release students early on Tuesday, then be closed all day Wednesday.

“Chief Hewitt has played a major role in the safety of our school system and students through his role in our safety planning commission and assistance in writing a state grant to begin our SRO program. He will be missed and we are honored to host his services,” said RS-OC Schools Superintendent Branden Roeder.

Flags in Rising Sun remain at half-staff for 27 days, one day for each year of Hewitt’s service in law enforcement in southeastern Indiana.
