LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Sunday, Oct. 11 is a day of remembrance for Indiana State Police here in Lafayette.
On this day last year, Trooper Peter "Bo" Stephan died while on duty. He was involved in a single-vehicle crash heading to a 911 call.
Officers are honoring his legacy with a "Hero Workout." They exercised for 14 minutes to represent District 14, which is where they serve. And they did specific workouts in a pattern of the numbers 9-1-1-8, which was Stephan's badge number.
ISP Trooper Corey Brown said Stephan is always on their minds.
"Bo was the perfect example of what the Indiana State Police is all about so whether we come across a situation or encounter something, we always think, what would Bo do, because Bo would always go out of his way to go above and beyond and do what he could for anyone," said Brown.
He said Trooper Stephan's legacy still lives on.
"Everyone that he encountered, whether on duty or off duty, he treated them with respect and he made a positive impact through his duties as an Indiana State Trooper," said Brown.
