Putnamville State Police Post Recieves New Monument

Last updated on Friday, November 28, 2008

(PUTNAMVILLE) - Recently the Putnamville District of the Indiana State Police received a new memorial monument to replace the existing monument which had stood vigil near the front entrance of the post for 15 years.

The new monument stone is carved from a 2,200 pound piece of black granite.

The face is etched with the Indiana State Police door shield and the opposite side is etched with both an Indiana State Police Badge, Indiana State Police alliance logo and, prominently displays the names of the 45 department personnel whose dedication and sacrifice will continue to be immortalized.

The Indiana State Police alliance has adopted and funded the $40,000 project to replace the monuments, after the previous limestone monuments became weathered.

Each of the 18 state police posts and the alliance office will receive a new monument.
