ISP consolidating many state posts

Thursday, June 3, 2010

On Thursday, Indiana State Police Supt. Paul Whitesell announced consolidations for state police posts.

Along with the consolidations, several existing state police posts will have counties added to or removed from present district boundaries. The changes announced affect the internal operation of the state police and will have no impact on the services provided to the public.

Supt. Whitesell announced during a meeting that the consolidations would not result in involuntary job loss by any civilian or police personnel. All civilian personnel will have the opportunity to transfer to a position at other state police facilities. State police road troopers, detectives and supervisory squad sergeants will continue serving within the counties they are presently assigned. The District and Assistant District Commanders of the consolidated posts will receive new assignments that will not result in loss of rank.

As a result of the consolidations, the Terre Haute Post will consolidate with the Putnamville Post effective July 1.

Other posts consolidating include the Connersville Post with the Pendleton Post effective Sept. 1, and the Redkey Post into portions with the Fort Wayne, Pendleton and Peru posts effective Nov. 1.

The Putnamville Post will add the counties of Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vigo and Vermillion from the Terre Haute Post. The post will also serve Putnam County.
