A trooper for nearly 40 years has been named Michigan State Police trooper of the year.

Richard Northrup of Tecumseh was honored this week at a ceremony in Lansing. He's assigned to the Monroe post and has spent his career in southeastern Michigan.

The head of the state police praised Northrup for his work performance, leadership skills and extensive community service. He's been associated with the Boy Scouts for decades.

The Howell High School graduate began his career at the Jackson post in 1974. Northrup was community service officer for eight years at the Adrian post, teaching and mentoring students in Lenawee County schools.
