*Not all counties have local police and fire departments, and therefore not all counties have an allocation for those pension funds. Those counties are: Benton, Brown, Crawford, Franklin, Harrison, Jasper, LaGrange, Newton, Ohio, Orange, Owen, Parke, Pulaski, Spencer, Switzerland, Union and Warren.
