Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter announced the promotion of Master Trooper Brian LaRoche to the rank of Sergeant, Monday evening.

According to the press release, Sergeant LaRoche achieved the rank through a competitive promotion process including a written test, oral interview, and overall job performance review.

Sergeant LaRoche is a native of Huntingburg, Indiana, and a 1991 graduate of Southridge High School. After high school, LaRoche served in the United States Army from 1991 to 1993. LaRoche also served in the Indiana National Guard until 1999.

LaRoche attended Vincennes University and graduated in 1996. Before joining the Indiana State Police, LaRoche worked as a reserve officer for Huntingburg Police Department and as a jailer for the Dubois County Sheriffs Department. He was selected to attend the 58th Indiana State Police Recruit Academy and was sworn in as a Trooper in December 1999. LaRoche's first duty assignment was to the Connorsville District until he transferred to the Jasper District in 2001.

Sergeant LaRoche will mentor and supervise a squad of troopers assigned to the Jasper Post in his new position.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
