STATEMENT ON VIOLENT WEEKEND FROM INDY FOP
Once again, Indiana’s Capital City experienced one of the most violent weekends to date this calendar year.
Multiple people were shot, stabbed and killed. These are human lives impacted, not stats to be tabulated.
Indianapolis residents and officers are stuck in the middle of this violence.
Our Indy FOP is greatly troubled by the lack of visibility by any elected or appointed leaders in response to these tragedies.
Indy’s Mayor, Prosecutor, Council President must legitimately engage on these issues (in real-time).
Simply talking about root causes means nothing to those in the middle of the violence, those losing their lives and the families that are being destroyed right now.
Leaders must act and outline their plan to intervene and triage this situation now.
Intervention and Prevention efforts must both happen together in real-time.
We need Actions Over Words. Victims deserve better…Officers and Detectives risking their lives in the neighborhoods deserve better…Indiana’s Capital City deserves better.
Rick Snyder, President
#inVEST in IMPD
Updated On: Jul 16, 2019
In order to help protect our brave men and women in blue, the Central Indiana Police Foundation has launched an exciting campaign to help provide high quality vest plate inserts for all IMPD officers and officers in surrounding counties. Each plate costs approximately $300 and an officer should wear a front and back plate for optimal protection. To make a contribution that can make a life-saving impact on an officer, please make your tax-deductible donation below. If you're a business owner who would like to contribute to equipping officers in your district, please contact Lisa Rollings at email@example.com or by phone at 317-536-1402
