Two Indiana State Police Troopers out of Putnamville were honored during an awards program held Friday at the Indiana Government Center for Indiana State Police employees.
Trooper Bradley J. Fyfe and Trooper Rondell K. Shelton each received awards for their hard work and dedication.
Trooper Fyfe, a three-year veteran of the ISP, was presented the 2018 Trooper of the District Award for the Putnamville District. He was overwhelmingly nominated for this award by his peers and the District 53 Command Team.
During 2018, Trooper Fyfe made 38 DUI arrests and 336 criminal arrests, including 115 felonies. This statistic placed him first in the district in criminal arrests.
“Trooper Fyfe sets the example for other officers to follow and treats people with genuine respect,” Lieutenant Dan Jones, Commander of the Putnamville District, said. “Fyfe is a mature and conscientious officer who has earned the respect of his peers, supervisors and the citizens he serves. He is a well-rounded law enforcement professional who will undertake any task”.
Trooper Rondell K. Shelton, a four-year veteran of the ISP, was awarded the 2018 Putnamville District DUI (Driving Under the Influence) Award. He incarcerated 49 impaired drivers throughout 2018 and was also the recipient of 2017 DUI Award.
“Trooper Shelton is a hardworking, self- motivated individual, and works diligently to provide safe roadways for the public,” Lieutenant Jones said.
