Illinois State Police District 16 Trooper Daniel Ramey was recently honored at the VFW Annual Law Enforcement Night Award Ceremony.
Trooper Ramey, a veteran of the US Coast Guard, served with the Freeport Police Department for three and a half years before becoming an Illinois State Trooper in 1997.
Trooper Ramey’s patrol efforts resulted in over 820 enforcement contacts in 2010. These contacts include the arrest of 23 impaired drivers, 22 other alcohol violation arrests and seven criminal arrests for dangerous drugs. One of Trooper Ramey’s drug arrests resulted in one of the largest drug seizures in district 16 in recent history.
