On Wednesday morning in Bloomington, Indiana, an Evansville District Indiana State Police Trooper was recognized for his efforts in combating drunk driving.
ISP Trooper Jordan Lee was recognized by the Indiana chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for his extraordinary efforts in removing impaired drivers from Indiana roadways.
Trooper Lee is a 4-year veteran and has already made a significant impact on impaired driving enforcement, arresting 73 impaired drivers.
“Those numbers are impressive considering Trooper Lee has worked the dayshift for the last 14 months,” said Lieutenant Brian Bailey, Commander of the Evansville District.

ISP says National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) data shows nearly 30 people die every day across the United States in drunk driving crashes. That staggering number averages one preventable death every 50 minutes, making the efforts of Trooper Lee even more commendable.
Trooper Lee is also a certified Drug Recognition Expert. “Trooper Lee’s enforcement efforts are definitely making our roadways safer,” said Bailey.
