Indiana State Police Trooper Day Transitions to Lawrence County Sheriff
LAWRENCE COUNTY - DECEMBER 31, 2022 - The Bloomington District would like to offer a few of our former members of the Indiana State Police good luck as they transition from their careers as Troopers to their new ones as Sheriffs of their respective communities.
Sgt. Greg Day marked off duty for the last time as a member of the Indiana State Police on September 22, 2022. Day graduated from Bedford North Lawrence High School in 1992 and then graduated Cum Laude from Indiana State University with a degree in Elementary Education in 1995. Day's 23-year career with ISP started when he graduated from the 57th Recruit Academy and was appointed as a Trooper in 1999. Upon his appointment, he was assigned to the Versailles District for over a year before he transferred to the Bloomington District at the end of 2000.
While at District 33, Day served as a Field Training Officer, Crash Reconstructionist, and a member of the Tactical Intervention Platoon. He was a graduate of the ISP Leadership Development School and later went on to instruct at the school by teaching curriculum such as, "Leadership During Times of Crisis" which detailed his supervisory experience during the Indiana State Fair stage collapse and other events.
Sgt. Day is a Seven-time recipient of the Bloomington District "Trooper of the Year", Five-time recipient of the Bedford Exchange Club "Officer of the Year", Six-time recipient of the Bloomington District OWI Enforcement Award, Three-time recipient of the J.D. Maxwell Mothers Against Drunk Driving Award, a recipient of the Monroe County Northside Exchange Club "Officer of the Year", and in 2007 he was awarded both an ISP Life Award and an ISP Meritorious Service Award. In 2011, Day was promoted to Sergeant where he served as a Supervisor and created the District A.C.E.S. (Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Section) until he finished his career a few months ago.
"It's an understatement to say we are going to miss Sgt. Day and his leadership but we are looking forward to continuing to work with him as he begins the next phase of his career serving the residents of Lawrence County as Sheriff on January 1, 2023," Evan De Stefano.
