Entry Description
Indianapolis, IN- Today, the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division conducted the CVED Inspector Challenge at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

Three Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officers and four Motor Carriers Inspectors from around the state competed in four categories which included level 1 safety inspection, passenger vehicle inspection, non-bulk Haz-Mat inspection and cargo tank inspection. Each participant in the event underwent additional training prior to the competition that familiarized them with the rules and procedures.

Each station of inspection is timed and the competitors are judged on their ability to identify violations on the vehicles or drivers and to determine if they are out of service violations.

The following people were chosen as the winners in the following categories:

>North American Standard Level 1 Inspector Champion- Charles Lovins

>Hazardous Materials Cargo Tank Inspection Champion- Charles Lovins

>Passenger Vehicle Inspection Champion- Charles Lovins

>Grand Champion of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Inspector Challenge- Charles Lovins

Senior Motor Carrier Inspector Charles Lovins will represent the Indiana State Police at the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance North American Inspectors Challenge in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania August 11-14, 2014. MCI Lovins is a 13 year veteran of the Indiana State Police. He resides in Hamlet with his wife and four children.

“This competition not only builds camaraderie between the competitors but it enhances the training that each CVEO and MCI receive” stated DC M/MCI Mike Wilson. “The Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division is committed to public’s safety through these types of inspections and this competition can only augment our inspection procedures.”
