“Our collective membership learned of the charges announced by the Marion County Prosecutor.
We recognize the Grand Jury process and the role of the Prosecutor in selecting what evidence is presented to them for review.
We look forward to a full, fair and public airing of all of the facts and circumstances surrounding the events in question.
While officers prefer to avoid any use of force, we fully recognize the requirement to safely and swiftly effectuate the lawful arrest of individuals when called upon to do so, especially during tense and rapidly evolving events.
Therefore, we welcome a robust review of these allegations and have confidence in the process.
In the meantime, we appreciate the continued support of residents for our city's law enforcement officers as they continue to faithfully serve during these challenging and uncertain times.”
