After a recent increase in violence the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and Marion County Sheriff’s Office are increasing patrols in those districts that have been most affected by the violence said IMPD Police Chief Bryan Roach during a press conference on Saturday. Chief Roach outlined three things the department will be doing going forward:
-Increased manpower in designated areas around the city, concentrated on places that have seen a recent uptick in violence
-Commanders in districts have been given approval to staff the way they need to in accordance with the volume of issues
-New initiative within investigations division to increase collaboration across individual units to better identify issues before they happen.
Chief Roach closed the press conference with a plea for those who know someone who is engaging in criminal activity to come forward and “have courage to reach out” to law enforcement
