The 2012 Division of Law Enforcement’s Pitzer “Outstanding Officer of the Year” Award recipient is among seven new corporals. He was also named the District 5 Officer of the Year for 2012.

Clark is a native of Ohio and a graduate of Oak Hills High School in Cincinnati and Hawking College in eastern Ohio. After obtaining an associate’s degree from Hocking Technical College, Clark was accepted into the Indiana Conservation Officer’s Recruit School, appointed as a probationary officer in 1999 and assigned to Owen County in District Five in January of 2000. Clark serves in additional roles as an Emergency Vehicle Operation Instructor, Advanced Interviewer, Field Training Officer, and Watercraft Crash Investigator.

“I’m very exited about my new position,” Clark said. “I’ll be a first line supervisor for Owen, Greene, Putnam, and Sullivan counties. I feel very fortunate that I have a group of experienced and dedicated officers to lead and look forward to learning my new duties.”
