McKittrick named officer of the year

Ryan McKittrick, a Ripley County Sheriff’s Office deputy, received the 2013 Officer of the Year Award from the Versailles American Legion Feb. 6, according to a Nixle message.

Every year, the post chooses a fireman and police officer for his or her outstanding performance in his/her duties for the year.

McKittrick is a 2006 Milan High School graduate. While in high school, he played football and attended the Southeastern Career Center Law Enforcement Program. He also completed an internship at the RCSO as part of that program requirement. This year, he will finish his associate degree in criminal justice at Ivy Tech Community College.

In 2009, he was selected as a RCSO reserve deputy and that is where he began his career in law enforcement. In 2011, after working for Ripley County in a volunteer capacity for nearly two years, he was hired at the Vevay Police Department and attended the Indiana Law Enforcement Basic Course 2011-191, graduating in April of that year. In 2012, a position with the sheriff’s office opened, and he was hired there.

McKittrick has achieved various training accomplishments, including qualifying as a firearms expert and obtaining general instructor certification. He is a defensive tactics instructor, is standard field sobriety certified and Datamaster breath test certified and facilitates the sheriff’s office gang intelligence and in-car video systems with video logistics and maintenance.

In 2013, the deputy led the RCSO in documented case reports with 113, investigated the most crashes with 77 and served 510 civil process papers in addition to all the other complaints and calls received on a regular basis.

Sheriff Tom Grills states, “Deputy Ryan McKittrick is a very significant asset to our office. His willingness to succeed and his work ethic make him a very valuable employee and an admired colleague. I am pleased to have had the ability to hire Ryan and work alongside him. His future looks very bright!

“I want to take a minute and also thank the Legion for their years of support and dedication to our country and community.”
