By Herald Staff
JASPER — Two probationary troopers — Tyler Trueblood and Jacob Lauer — who graduated from the 80th Indiana State Police Academy last month have been assigned to the Indiana State Police in Jasper.
Trueblood is a native of Lawrence County, and is a 2005 graduate of Bedford North Lawrence High School. He served as a Lawrence County Sheriff's Deputy and as a member of the Army National Guard. He and his two sons reside in Lawrence County.
Lauer is a native of Spencer County and is a 2010 graduate of South Spencer High School. He furthered his education by attending Ivy Tech where he received an associate degree in criminal justice. He served as a Spencer County Sheriff's Deputy and as a volunteer with the Luce Fire Territory in Spencer County. He and his wife reside in Spencer County.
Probationary troopers now begin their next phase of instruction, a three-month field training period riding with veteran troopers. Field training aims to give a practical application to the training received throughout the formal academy. Upon completing field training, the troopers will be assigned a state police patrol vehicle and begin solo patrol.
These officers have already completed over 1,200 hours of structured training in law enforcement techniques and hands-on scenario-based training at the Indiana State Police Recruit Academy. Their curriculum included criminal law instruction, emergency vehicle operations, psychology, traffic law, crash investigation, self-defense, first responder and other general enforcement related training.
Upon completion of field training, Trueblood and Lauer will be assigned patrol duties in the Jasper District.
