Jasper Post trooper earns 3 awards

From Local Sources


JASPER — An Indiana State Police trooper from the Jasper Post earned three awards Friday at the Indiana State Police Spring Awards Ceremony held at the Indiana Government Center in Indianapolis.

Superintendent Doug Carter presented Trooper Noah Ewing with the Life Award, the Jasper District’s Top OWI Trooper and the Jasper District’s Trooper of the Year.

Ewing, a Pennsylvania native, is a three-year veteran of the Indiana State Police. He graduated from the 75th Indiana State Police Recruit Academy in November 2015.

He was assigned to the Jasper Post upon graduation and has been primarily patrolling Orange County.

Ewing’s apprehension of 72 impaired drivers in 2018 earned him both the Life Award and the district’s Top OWI Trooper awards. That total for OWI apprehensions ranked fifth in the entire state, according to Sgt. Robert J. Lambert II, the post’s public affairs officer.

The post-level Trooper of the Year award is presented to the trooper at each district who has achieved outstanding efforts in the area of traffic and criminal enforcement, case and crash investigation, public information programs and community service and who has exemplified the professionalism and integrity expected of a trooper, according to the state police.

Ewing was recently selected to serve on the Jasper District All Crimes Policing Team, which primarily focuses on drug interdiction and impaired driving detection.

Jasper District Commander Lt. Jason Allen said he could not be more proud of Ewing’s “commitment to making our communities a safer place for all of us.”

The Jasper post covers seven counties: Dubois, Spencer, Crawford, Daviess, Martin, Orange and Perry.
