Indiana State Police Memorial Service


Indiana State Police troopers gathered for their annual memorial service in Putnamville on Wednesday.

After an opening prayer, the Putnamville District’s Honor Guard displayed the national and state flags.

Each fallen officer’s name was read, along with a description of the circumstances surrounding their death.

Since ISP’s inception in 1933, 46 members have died in the line of duty.

“For their sake and for their family’s sake, I think it’s just incredibly important to recognize that service. And then, for the officers who are here, presently, serving, sometimes it’s just good to remember how dangerous this job can be,” says Lieutenant Dan Jones, Commander of the Putnamville District.

The ceremony concluded with a bagpipe performance of “Amazing Grace” and the playing of “Taps” by a Greencastle High School student.
