Two ISP employees applauded

Two Indiana State Police Versailles District employees were honored Dec. 12 for reaching career milestones, said Sgt. Noel Houze, the district’s public information officer.

First Sgt. Raymond Otter, the acting commander, presented Sgt. Mark Helms with his 1 million mile safe driving award. Helms began his career with ISP at the Seymour District after graduating from its 45th academy in December 1987. He has served as a member of the Tactical Intervention Platoon and a field training officer and program coordinator. The instructor in crash investigations, emergency vehicle operations and speed timing devices is also a crash reconstructionist, having testified in federal and state courts as an expert witness.

The Franklin County native is a 1979 Brookville High School graduate. He attended the University of Evansville, graduating in 1983 with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. Prior to becoming a trooper, he served as a Columbus Police Department officer from 1984-87. Helms still resides in Columbus and has two grown daughters.

Tammy Cumberworth, a Versailles District Criminal Investigations Division secretary, was also recognized for her 20 years of service. She began her ISP career Dec. 6, 1993, as a data input operator at the Versailles post. In 1996, she was promoted to secretary. The 1991 Jac-Cen-Del High School graduate currently resides in Ripley County with her husband Todd and their 6-year-old-daughter, Lexie.
