The Indianapolis Police Foundation at the FOP
The Indianapolis Police Foundation (IPF) aims to serve and protect those who serve and protect our great city. IPF’s goal is to ensure that the brave men and women of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, as well as other related agencies, have the resources they need to do their jobs safely and effectively. IPF’s mission guides its work:
The mission of the Indianapolis Police Foundation is to foster community-wide support for law enforcement by meeting the comprehensive needs of officers in the line of duty, providing holistic support for traumatically injured officers and their families, and building positive officer-community partnerships.
IPF’s first project involved the funding and distribution of vital Gunshot Trauma Kits to every IMPD officer, providing critical, life-saving supplies to be used in the case of a gunshot wound. The need for these kits is demonstrated by the shooting of Officer Jason Fishburn in 2008. An officer responding to this incident had a prepared Gunshot Trauma Kit, which resulted in the ability to provide emergency medical care immediately and helped save Officer Fishburn’s life.

Through the years, the Indianapolis Police Foundation has supported law enforcement through the InVest in Blue program which raised funds for breast plates for local police officers and through its Code 1 Fund which supports officers and their families when they need assistance. For more information on the activities of IPF, please contact Kathy Mance O’Brian, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-536-1402.
