The Indiana State Police recently recognized the supervisor of the Forensic Identification Unit of the Laboratory Division for 35 years of dedicated service to the department and the citizens of Indiana. First Sergeant Shannon Spreckelmeyer was presented with a 35 year certificate and a uniform medallion which signifies her years of service by Superintendent Doug Carter.

Spreckelmeyer graduated from Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1977. She immediately began her career with the Indiana State Police as a civilian Clerk V in the Central Records Division in 1978 issuing gun permits, private detective licenses and conducting criminal records checks.

July 1980, Spreckelmeyer graduated from the 39th ISP Recruit Academy and was assigned to the Terre Haute Post and patrolled Clay County. During this time, Spreckelmeyer also worked undercover drug and illegal gambling investigations involving motorcycle gangs while also working road patrol.

Trooper Spreckelmeyer transferred to the Putnamville Post in 1981 and worked Morgan County. She also volunteered as a counselor at numerous State Police Career Camps and Respect for Law Camps.

In 1984 Spreckelmeyer transferred to the Indianapolis Post to work Marion County. She was assigned to the Indianapolis International Airport Interdiction Team and later worked as the department's full time recruiter.

Promoted to Sergeant in the Personnel Division in 1988, Spreckelmeyer served as manager of the trooper selection and recruiting process. She transferred to the Indianapolis Laboratory Division in 1989 to serve as the Assistant Laboratory Manager and Supervisor of the Photography Unit.

In 1995 Spreckelmeyer received her Associate of Science and a Bachelor of Science Degrees in Criminal Justice from Indiana University. She also completed the FBI Basic and Advanced Administrative Course in Fingerprints. Later the same year, Spreckelmeyer was promoted to First Sergeant, received training as a latent print, footwear and tire analyst, and was assigned to supervise the Forensic Identification Unit.

Spreckelmeyer serves as an Executive Board Member of the Indiana State Police Alliance, Chairman of the Board of Indiana State Police Alliance Security Incorporated and Board Member of Cops for Kids. She is also a member of the International Association for Identification and Indiana Chapter of International Association for Identification.

On March 16th, 2014, First Sergeant Shannon Spreckelmeyer will have the unique distinction of being the longest serving female Indiana State Police Officer having served 33 years, 8 months and 10 days. On that date she bypasses the previous record holder of that honor, retired ISP Sergeant Jill Rice.

First Sergeant Spreckelmeyer resides in Brownsburg with her two beagles, Cagney and Lacey.
