Troy Riggs at Officer Renn's Funeral

Indianapolis Director of Public Safety Troy Riggs spoke at the funeral of fallen IMPD Officer Perry Renn.

Riggs said, “There are some things in life more important than yourself. Officer Perry Renn’s life exhibits this tenet. He dedicated his life to serving others, both in the military and within IMPD.”

He continued, “On that terrible, horrible night, he confronted evil and protected fellow officers and the citizens of the neighborhood. His actions certainly saved lives at the expense of his own.”
