From Local Sources
Indiana Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer Jim Schreck, who is assigned to Harrison County, has been named the 2018 District 8 Officer of the Year.
District 8 is a 10-county district covering Crawford, Orange, Perry, Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Jackson, Lawrence, Scott and Washington counties.
The law enforcement division of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources has 10 districts statewide. Each selects an officer of the year by a vote of the district’s officers. Winners are then in the running for a statewide version of the award, called the Pitzer Award.
Indiana conservation officer James D. Pitzer was shot in the line of duty and died as a result of his wounds. The director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources will select the winner of the award named after him.
Schreck, a 15-year veteran, originally from Corydon, has been assigned to Harrison County since 2003. He also won the district-level award in 2007 and 2014.
Schreck has served in a variety of roles, including background investigator, boat accident investigator, cave rescue team member, division spokesperson, field training officer, physical tactics instructor and Taser instructor.
Earlier this month, Indiana Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer Jon Watkins, who is assigned to Dubois County, was named the 2018 District 7 Officer of the Year.
District 7 is a 10-county district covering Dubois, Spencer, Pike, Daviess, Gibson, Martin, Perry, Posey, Vanderburgh and Warrick counties.
