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

RETIRED POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION
Greetings to all retirees, and a special greeting to those who have chosen to become members of the Retired Police Officers Association (RPOA). Attendance at our monthly meetings continue to grow. RPOA meetings are the second Thursday of each month. Doors open at 11:00 am, the meeting starts promptly at 1:00 pm, with a free lunch immediately following. Come early, stay late and enjoy the conversation. Dues to belong to the RPOA are $20.00 a year. Come check us out. We have a good time.
One of my goals in 2017 is to increase membership, offer some fund raising projects, all to maintain our dues at the current level. Like everything else, the cost of doing business continues to grow, and I hope we can continue to offer our benefits for $20.00 annually.
I look forward to seeing you at one of our meetings.
