Three Region 8 Troopers Commended by State Police

FEBRUARY 28, 2004 - Posted at 1:35 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Three Arkansas State Troopers based in Region 8 have been awarded official departmental commendations during a meeting yesterday of the Arkansas State Police Commission.

Corporal Steven D. Shults, 51, (Troop C) of Pocahontas was presented an official commendation by ASP Director Colonel Don Melton for "resolve under extreme conditions and a tireless devotion to his search for a missing individual, his diligence and keen observations which have been credited with locating a missing individual who was safely returned to her family."  On December 21, 2003, Randolph County law enforcement officers and other emergency personnel launched a search for a woman that had last been seen near a school playground.  As the search moved to a new location that evening, Shults instincts led him back to an area that had already been searched where he located the missing woman.  Shults is a 16-year Arkansas State Police veteran.

Also commended Friday were Corporal Thomas Gregory, 39, (Troop D) of Brinkley, and Trooper First Class Rodney Myers, 32, (Troop D), also of Brinkley.
