Last week, out-going Kosciusko County Sheriff Rocky Goshert, along with a number of other past and current Hoosier sheriffs, was honored by Indiana Sheriff Association Executive Director Stephen Luce at a state-wide ISA conference.
According to a press release from Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Chad Hill, The ISA was quoted saying, “The Indiana Sheriff’s Association recognizes and appreciates such distinguished service and honor that you bring yourself, your family, your state and to all law enforcement officers of this nation.”
Goshert has a storied career in law enforcement. He served as an Indiana State Police Trooper from 1980 to 2001. He then moved over to KCSD where he served as a deputy, then a corporal, from 2001 to 2006.
ISA presented Goshert with a lifetime award plaque that stated, “This award is presented in recognition of your sincere dedication, distinguished service, and many contributions to the law enforcement profession. Goshert was not in attendance at last week’s conference, as he was here in Kosciusko County handling county business, but incoming Sheriff Aaron Rovenstine was there. And he presented Goshert with the plaque at this morning’s Kosciusko County Commissioner’s meeting.
When Rovenstine handed over the plaque, Goshert received a standing ovation from all those in attendance at the meeting.
