(GREENE CO.) - Master Trooper John Yung has completed 20 years of service with the Indiana State Police.

Yung graduated from the 53rd ISP Recruit School in December of 1995. For reaching this milestone, he will receive an award from Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglas G. Carter that will consist of a framed certificate and a longevity pin to be worn on the uniform.

Yung grew up in Greene County and graduated from Linton-Stockton High School in 1980. Yung then served with the Greene County Sheriff's Department for eight years before graduating from Vincennes University in 1993 with an Associate's Degree in Law Enforcement.

Upon his graduation from the Indiana State Police Academy, Yung was assigned to the Versailles Post where he served as a road trooper, primarily patrolling Dearborn and Ohio Counties until 1997. Master Trooper Yung then transferred to the Bloomington Post where he currently serves at his current position of Master Trooper, primarily assigned to Greene County.

During his career, Yung has served on the Tactical Intervention Platoon (Riot Squad) since 1998 and has also served as a member of the Critical Incident Stress Management Team for the past 16 years.

Bloomington District Commander, Lieutenant Paul Bucher stated "Master Trooper Yung has always been one of the hardest working police officers I've ever had the pleasure of working with; he is a valuable asset not only to the citizens of the State of Indiana but to the other law enforcement officers he serves with daily. His work ethic and professionalism do not go unnoticed".

Yung is married to Heather; they have one daughter, Haley who is currently in college.

Yung and his family reside in Greene County.
