Study Commission Focusing on IMPD Staffing and Funding, Announces Members and Meeting Dates
Commission aimed at determining the necessary number of IMPD Officers
Indianapolis – As one of its final acts in 2013, the Indianapolis City/County Council passed a proposal, sponsored by Council Vice President John Barth, to create a bipartisan study commission to determine the appropriate and necessary number of IMPD officers and to review and analyze long-term funding options.
“It is long past time Indianapolis had a transparent, long-term plan for IMPD staffing,” said Councillor Barth. “It is my goal that the Commission will set forth a plan for staffing and funding that will remove the politics from policing, so we can keep the focus where it belongs – on protecting our citizens.”
