Former Seymour trooper recognized for 30 years of service

A state trooper who began his career with the Seymour Post recently was recognized for 30 years of service by the Indiana State Police.

Mastor Trooper Todd Durnil, who graduated with the 48th recruit school Dec. 9, 1990, received his rewards from ISP that consisted of a framed certificate and a longevity pin to be worn on his uniform.

Durnil is a 1987 graduate of Edgewood High School and attended Indiana University while serving in the U.S. Air Force.

After graduating from recruit school, he was appointed a trooper and assigned to the Seymour District, where he patrolled Jackson County.

In 1995, Durnil transferred to the Bloomington District, where he primarily patrolled Monroe County.

In 2004, he was promoted as a member of the first Indiana State Police Motorcycle Patrol since the 1940s and served as a squad leader until 2012.

Durnil also has served on other specialty teams for ISP, including the explosive ordnance disposal team and tactical intervention platoon (riot squad) team. He also served as a firearms instructor and armorer and was promoted to the position of commercial vehicle enforcement officer. In 2019, he returned to the Bloomington District as a road trooper.

Durnil and his wife have two adult children and live in Monroe County.
