Police work to spark discussion about drugs and gangs
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 7, 2015) — Indianapolis Metro Police Chief Rick Hite warned parents about the threat of gangs in Indianapolis during a community meeting.
On Saturday police tried to spark a broader discussion about drugs and bad influences for youth in the Indianapolis area.
Community members gathered at a church in Fountain Square for what they’re calling a call to action meeting.
Police talked about their efforts and the drug trends they are watching.
It was also a warning for parents to watch their children’s activity online.
“We have our gang intelligence people, we have people who basically go after bad guys with guns and what we`re doing is preparing what we think is an opportunity to hear from the professionals,” said IMPD chief Rick Hite.
Chief Hite told parents to specifically watch for fights breaking out online.
