By Vic Ryckaert
The Indiana State Police will close the post in Seymour within the next few months, a spokesman said.
It's the first time on more than 30 years that a post has been shut down, 1st Sgt. Dave Bursten said.
"This is technology driven, efficiency driven," Bursten said. "It's making the best use of tax dollars."
The post's functions and responsibilities will be absorbed by the post in Versailles, Bursten said. The change will happen in about three to four months.
The Seymour post covers troopers in Bartholomew, Jennings and Jackson counties.
The troopers assigned to those counties will remain on their beats, Bursten said. Administrators and civilian workers will be reassigned.
"Nobody is losing a job over this," Bursten said.
