ISP Lafayette Post Troopers Honored at Awards Ceremony

Indianapolis - Recently, the Indiana State Police Department held an awards and recognition ceremony in Indianapolis. The ceremony honored and recognized individuals from around the state for their dedication to service, bravery and devotion to the department, and the citizens of Indiana. Those individuals chosen were employees of the Indiana State Police Department and other public safety agencies.

The idea for this event was conceived by Indiana State Police Superintendent Paul Whitesell, Ph.D. Superintendent Whitesell felt the need to publicly recognize the achievements and deeds of self sacrifice and accomplishment that all too often go without the proper recognition.

Trooper Ryan Winters, who works from the Indiana State Police Lafayette Post, was recognized as the 2011 Trooper of the District for dedication to his job, traffic and criminal enforcement, community involvement, instructor ratings, specialty assignments, and other services performed for the department beyond normal expectations. He was selected by the command staff at the Lafayette Post. Winters, a nine year veteran of the Department, patrols the district with his K-9 partner Bosco.

Trooper Darrick Scott, also assigned to the Indiana State Police Lafayette District, received the Indiana State Police Life Award for his commitment to removing impaired drivers from Indiana roadways. In 2011, he led the Lafayette District with 57 impaired driving arrests. Trooper Scott, a five year veteran, patrols Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties.

“The work that these two troopers have done represents the quality of work that the people of the State of Indiana have come to expect,” Lieutenant Jay Janke, commander of the Lafayette State Police Post explains. “Keeping the citizens and visitors of Indiana safe is our number one goal.”
