Indianapolis – The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute recognized several police officers statewide for their hard work and dedication to the Operation Pull Over efforts of 2012. Included in those recognized were three Indiana State Troopers from the Sellersburg Post, the Lowell Post and General Headquarters in Indianapolis.

Operation Pull Over is a combined public information and enforcement campaign, which aims to reduce impaired driving and increase seat belt use in Indiana. The campaign is structured in four quarterly blitzes or waves of education and awareness each year. Each blitz consists of four weeks of intense public awareness followed by two weeks of increased enforcement. The DUI Task Force is one focus of Operation Pull Over. Another is the "Click it or Ticket" program for seatbelt safety.

Those Indiana State Troopers recognized for their superior efforts during the 2012 Operation Pull Over period were as follows;

The ICJI Executive Director’s Award was awarded to Sergeant Eric Dunn, General Headquarters. Sgt. Dunn is a 19 year veteran of the Indiana State Police and serves in the ISP Training Division.

The ICJI Superior DUI Enforcement Award was awarded to Trooper Patrick Stinson and Trooper Brian Rubesha. Trooper Stinson is a 5 year veteran of the Indiana State Police and serves the Sellersburg District. Trooper Rubesha is also a 5 year veteran of the ISP and serves the Lowell District.
