Attorney General to visit Indianapolis, highlight police work
WASHINGTON (February 8, 2016) —Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch will visit six cities around the country starting this week – including Indianapolis.
These cities have excelled in each of the six pillars discussed in the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing final report: (1) Building Trust and Legitimacy; (2) Policy and Oversight; (3) Technology and Social Media; (4) Community Policing and Crime Reduction; (5) Officer Training and Education; and (6) Officer Safety and Wellness.
The first visit is Miami-Dade County in Florida on Thursday and Friday. The other locations are Portland, Oregon; Fayetteville, North Carolina; Phoenix, Arizona; Los Angeles, California; and Indianapolis, Indiana.
“One of my top priorities as Attorney General is strengthening relationships between law enforcement officers and the communities we serve and protect,” said Attorney General Lynch. “During the second phase of my Community Policing Tour, I will be highlighting some of the innovative efforts underway around the country to build trust, foster cooperation and enhance public safety. I look forward to meeting with law enforcement officers, local leaders and residents in the weeks and months ahead to discuss how we can ensure that every American benefits from neighborhoods that are supportive, safe and strong.”
Attorney General Lynch’s visit to Indianapolis is tentatively set for April.
