A new Indiana State trooper reported for duty to the Indiana State Police Post in Fort Wayne on Dec. 17.

The trooper is from a class of 54 recruits who just graduated from the 78th Indiana State Police Recruit Academy on Thursday, Dec. 13.

During the 22-week training period, he and his fellow recruits received over 600 hours of classroom instruction as well as nearly 400 hours of hands-on practical and scenario based training exercises.

This new trooper will now be assigned to train with veteran troopers for the next 13 weeks before receiving his own patrol car for solo patrol in Huntington, Whitley and Allen counties.

Trooper Adam J. Carroll, 29, is a native of Huntington and a 2008 graduate of Huntington North High School.  He served in the United States Marine Corps for four-and-a-half years as a military police officer both in Okinawa, Japan and at Camp LeJeune in North Carolina. 

During his time as a military police officer, he served as a vehicle crash investigator.  In August of 2013, he was hired as a deputy by the Huntington County Sheriff’s Department, where he worked until being accepted to the 78th Indiana State Police Recruit Academy.  During his time with the Sheriff’s Department, he was a member of their Fatal Crash Investigation Team.  Carroll is married with two children and they are residents of Huntington County.
