  • Trooper Brian Snyder Returns to Duty 4 Years After Being Struck Along I-65 in Johnson County

    April 18, 2017 No comments

    Trooper Brian SnyderIndianapolis, IN – After nine grueling surgeries, Master Trooper Brian Snyder has returned to full police duty. His desire to return to the career he loves kept him motivated through the four years of multiple surgeries.

    In the early morning hours of March 6th, 2013 Trooper Snyder was investigating a crash on I-65 northbound near the 92 mile marker. Snyder was standing just outside his car when he happened to notice a semi tractor-trailer coming straight toward him. Just in the nick of time, he dove through his open door into the front seat and the semi sideswiped his car. Snyder narrowly escaped serious injury but noticed some discomfort in his back and could immediately tell his hand was injured from the impact. The semi pulled over on the shoulder ahead of the crash scene but then pulled away, it was never located. Snyder turned out to be more seriously injured than he initially thought requiring 5 surgeries to repair his hand and 4 surgeries on his back. During the entire process many doctors told Brian he would likely not be able to return to duty, however he remained focused and refused to accept that as an option.

    Trooper Snyder, a 19 year veteran, has returned to the Indianapolis District and will begin patrolling Johnson and southern Marion County on the midnight shift. Indianapolis District Commander, Lt. Jeff Payne said, “Brian is a model trooper, we are thankful he has been able to recover from his injuries, he had a long road to recovery and his commitment to returning to duty demonstrates his passion for being an Indiana State Trooper”

  • National Public Safety Telecommunications Week – April 9 to 15, 2017

    April 11, 2017 No comments

    In 1991 Congress proclaimed the second full week in April to be National Public Safety Telecommunications Week to recognize the importance of those special individuals who coordinate the efforts of police, fire, and EMS workers. Governor Eric J. Holcomb has proclaimed the week of April 9-15 as Public Safety Telecommunications Week in Indiana. Indiana has recognized this week since 1999.

    Telecommunications operators are the unsung heroes of public safety. They operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These are the men and women who collect the initial information and pass it along to the first responders in the field. Often they are able to give immediate lifesaving directions to the caller during medical emergencies or can be the calming voice to reassure the victim of a violent crime that help is on the way.
