LOWELL - The Indiana State Police (ISP) All Crimes Policing Team (ACP), based out of the Lowell District, joined forces with Pulaski County Sheriff Department (PCSD) and the Medaryville Police over Labor Day weekend to conduct a multi-jurisdictional enforcement effort in Pulaski County.

This combined effort led to 17 traffic citations issued, 58 warnings, two Operating While Intoxicated arrests, one minor consumption of alcohol, 12 criminal arrests, one felony arrest and six drug related arrests for marijuana and methamphetamine.

K-9 units from both the ISP and PCSD participated in the effort.  

A female was arrested for criminal conversion after allegedly attempting to shoplift 24 items from the Dollar General in Medaryville.  Six officers working the weekend detail were on scene within minutes of the 9-1-1 call made, and the suspect's apprehension took place before she was able to leave the store.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, with the success of this enforcement effort, is planning similar enforcement with the ISP All Crimes Policing Team in the near future.

The ISP ACP Team is a specialized team of troopers who work all seven counties within Indiana State Police District 13 (Lake, Porter, La Porte, Newton, Jasper, Pulaski and Starke Counties) to address violent crime and drug activity. The ISP ACP Team provides additional manpower and resource support to local agencies with the common goal of making each community as safe as possible.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
