ISP Lowell Post Holds Annual Memorial Service

Lowell: The Indiana State Police Lowell Post held its annual memorial service, today, to remember those ISP employees who have given their lives in the line of duty.

Troopers were brought to attention and the Indiana State Police Honor Guard presented the colors. Roll call of the fallen was read by Assistant District Commander, First Sergeant Terrance Weems and Area 1 Captain Ed Schroder. After the service, troopers and other attendees enjoyed a luncheon provided by the Indiana State Police Alliance, Indiana Black Troopers Association, Larry Fegaras of Rodini’s Restaurant and fellowship at the post.

Guests at the service included the family of fallen Indiana State Trooper Scott Patrick who was killed in the line of duty in December 22, 2003.

The Patrick Family was presented by First Sergeant Weems a copy of the Indiana General Assembly House Resolution No. 10 Section 2 introduced by Representative Vernon G. Smith which urges INDOT to erect a memorial to Trooper Patrick at the I-80 EB to Grant Street exit. (See attached photo).

A total of 46 Indiana State Police employees have lost their lives in the line of duty since the Department was formed in 1933.

Since the early days of the Indiana State Police, memorial services have been held each May at all Indiana State Police districts to perpetuate the memory of those who have died in the line of duty. The service serves as a means of paying tribute to those who died in the line of duty, that their sacrifice was not made in vain, and as a reminder to those of us left behind that we should strive to maintain the level of professional service to the public our departed comrades so unselfishly gave their lives for.
