Following today's announcement from the Mayor on the IMPD Chief Transition Process, Indy FOP President, Rick Snyder, issued the following statement:
"We are pleased to see the IMPD Chief transition process moving forward.
Today's announcement of an Acting Chief provides for continuity of command especially in light of the daily challenges our City and our police officers face.
We are also collectively pleased to see a process which appears to be focused on an internal selection in the coming days.
It is important this police department does not lose ground by unnecessarily delaying the transition process. In the interim our police officers and detectives remain focused on providing protection for the residents and visitors of Indianapolis."
