INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard joined Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Thursday to release a crime reduction plan for this summer. Police are calling this a coordinated and pro-active effort to make Indianapolis neighborhoods safer this summer.
Already this summer, IMPD has conducted curfew sweeps. Officers looked for anyone under the age of 17 who was out past the city’s 11 p.m. curfew. Then on Tuesday, IMPD coordinated a sweep operation called C.L.E.A.N. The acronym stands for Coordinated Law Enforcement Activity Network. During that sweep officers arrested 60 people and shut down two businesses.
Then on Wednesday Indianapolis Council Democrats released a plan to place officers in rehabbed homes in troubled communities rent-free for two years.
