CROWN POINT | On April 18, Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglas Carter accepted a certificate on behalf of the Indiana State Police recognizing the Department as a Bronze Medal Law Enforcement Torch Run Agency. An agency is recognized as a Bronze Medal Torch Run Agency for raising between $5,000 and 9,999 in donations toward Special Olympics Indiana.
