ISP Trooper honored at VFW award ceremony
Illinois State Police District 16 commander, Capt. Jeff Bain, recently announced that Trooper Scott Lanthrip was honored at the VFW Annual Law Enforcement Night Award Ceremony in Loves Park.
Trooper Lanthrip joined the Illinois State Police Aug. 6, 2006. He serves as a field training officer, Crowd Control Team member and a crash reconstruction specialist. He is a Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officer (C.V.E.O.) and member of the Statewide Weapons of Mass Destruction team. Only five Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officers in Illinois share that distinction.
Each of these highly specialized qualifications demonstrates Lanthrip’s commitment to safeguarding the citizens of Illinois. Together, in one officer, they make him an extremely valuable asset to his community and profession. Trooper Lanthrip was selected to work side by side with the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI and the Chicago Fire Department for the 2012 G8/NATO Summit in Chicago due to his specialized skills.
Trooper Lanthrip has served the people of the State of Illinois, the Illinois State Police, and District 16 in the highest tradition of the ISP’s motto: “Integrity, Service and Pride.”
