INDIANAPOLIS (WANE)  An Indiana State Trooper assigned to the Fort Wayne post was recognized in Indianapolis on Wednesday with the department’s Meritorious Service Award for his efforts to keep drunk drivers off the road. In 2013, Corporal Matt Lazoff arrested 82 drunk drivers.

“Lazoff’s committment to the safety of Indiana’s roadways is not only exemplary, but reflects the committment that the agency as a whole has to the service of the communities that it serves” said Lieutenant Tony Casto, Fort Wayne District Commander.

Trooper Lazoff received the same award in 2012 when he was assigned to the Toll Road post for arresting 75 suspected drunk drivers in 2011. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
