Koch honored by state prosecutor council

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council recently recognized Sen Eric Koch, R-Bedford, with a Legislative Excellence Award for 2021.

Koch was chosen for the award for his work on the council’s priority legislation, House Enrolled Act 1082, the high tech crime units bill. The legislation creates a fund for establishing 10 high tech crimes units serving different geographic areas of Indiana. Police and prosecutors in the units will partner with university students to examine electronic devices and process them for evidence from GPS locations, texts, app usage, voicemails and phone calls.

Koch serves Senate District 44, which includes all or parts of Bartholomew, Brown, Jackson, Lawrence and Monroe counties.
