IMPD asking community to help keep officers safe as they investigate online threat


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — After three Baton Rouge police officers were murdered and just as many wounded by a doomed gunman Sunday, Metro Police Chief Troy Riggs asked the citizens of Indianapolis to help protect the lives of his policemen and women while stepping up their ambush awareness and officer personal safety training.

“We have sent out a one hour course on ambush awareness and preparation,” he said. “I have also sent out a couple memos reminding officers about safety of their family and having a plan in the event of an issue at your home in light of what happened to one of our officers.”
