Indiana State Police honor two area residents

Indiana State Police (ISP) employees throughout the state were recognized for their performance during 2013 at a Wednesday afternoon event in Indianapolis. ISP Public Information Officer Sgt. Noel Houze says that two area residents were among the three honored in the Versailles District.

Trooper Matt Simmons was recognized for his outstanding performance in DUI enforcement. ISP say that Simmons led the Versailles District in DUI arrests for 2013 with 72. Houze says that Simmons has been with the Indiana State Police since 2007 when he was assigned to the Seymour District. At Seymour, he was assigned patrol responsibilities in Bartholomew County. In 2010, after the merger of the Seymour and Versailles Districts, Simmons remained assigned to Bartholomew County where he resides today with his family. Houze adds that this marks Simmons' fourth straight year he has led the Versailles District in DUI arrests, after previously leading the Seymour District in DUI arrests. Simmons was also honored as the Versailles District Trooper of the Year in 2010.

Also recognized Wednesday was Master Motor Carrier Inspector, Kimberly Hill of the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division. Hill was the recipient of the R. Ralph Reed Motor Carrier Inspector of the Year for 2013. Houze says that Hill, who lives in Decatur County, was appointed to the Indiana State Police in 1995 and assigned motor carrier duties in the Versailles District.
