A 2000 graduate of Bedford North Lawrence High School, Robbins also graduated from Marian University in 2005, where he played basketball and received his Bachelor's Degree in Sports Management. Trooper Robbins began his career with the Indiana State Police in 2007 and upon graduating from the ISP Academy, he was assigned to serve the Bloomington District.
