Lieutenant Mike Trostle from the Eastern Adams Regional Police Department was honored for his 20 years of service with the department recently. Lt Trostle retired over 2 years ago, however with all the conflicts of the department during that time was not recognized as he should have been. Several of Lt Trostle’s fellow Officer’s from within EARP and the surrounding Police Agencies attended the recognition. Lt Trostle was said by many as one of the best. He acted as the Police Chief several times during some management changes of the last few years of his career. EARP officers spoke about how he was a true leader and will be missed. Best of Luck to you Mike !
