(BLOOMINGTON) - The Indiana State Police Bloomington District A.C.E.S. (Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Section) have continued to be extremely busy battling the drug epidemic in our local communities.

This team, led by Sgt. Greg Day, is a group of highly trained and motivated troopers who are extremely skilled at detecting criminal activity. Team members include Senior Trooper Chris Griggs, S/Trp. Allen Deel, his K-9 Drogos, Trp. Richard Klun and his K-9 Loki, Trp. Riley Nungester, Trp. Zach Parker, Trp. Matt Harris, Trp. Caleb Garvin, and Trp. Gabe Bault.

The A.C.E.S. respond to calls for service, investigate crashes and criminal cases, and are involved in the communities like all Indiana State Troopers. However, their patrols specifically target criminal activity. They work closely with the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section (DES) and local agencies, identifying high crime areas and drug suspects. The A.C.E.S. conduct both targeted patrols of these areas, as well as random patrols throughout the Bloomington District in an attempt to deter the rampant drug use and dealing that plagues our nation.

They also assist in warrant services and lengthy, ongoing drug investigatons.

During the course of the first 10 months of 2017, the A.C.E.S. have generated the following activity: 4,473 traffic contacts (tickets and warnings), 58 OWI arrests, 84 crashes investigated, 1,241 police services, 1,508 criminal arrests including 649 felony arrests, and 362 criminal cases investigated.

The Indiana State Police recognize that although enforcement is a key component in the fight on the opioid problems, it is not the only one. The Bloomington District partners with other law enforcement and judicial agencies, the healthcare community, and treatment facilities in an attempt to make the biggest impact possible. In 2017, Bloomington District Troopers began supplying those they encounter who are affected by the drug epidemic with an extensive list of treatment options and facilities in the area.

It is hoped that with all components working together, we can one day overcome this current opioid crisis.

If you are concerned about possible drug activity in your community or have specific drug information, you are asked to contact the Indiana State Police Bloomington District at 812-332-4411.
