Equipped Officers Are Essential for Safety

Public safety is crucial to the overall health and prosperity of any community, and the safety of our officers is critical to this effort. While public and tax dollars fund many of the needs of officers on the street, private funds must be leveraged to meet increasing protection and safety needs.

Following the tragic death of Officer Perry W. Renn, the 8-year-old son of one of his shift mates asked the question most community members do following the loss of an officer: how can I help? This young man started fundraising efforts to secure high quality ballistic vest plates for Officer Renn’s colleagues, resulting in over $20,000 in community donations. IPF hopes to build a fund to provide these resources as needed throughout Central Indiana. Your donation could provide live-saving dividends.

To outfit an officer, the cost is approximately $600 and your inVESTment can make a critical impact, allowing our officers to have the highest quality protection. If you have questions, please contact the IPF Executive Director, Kathy O’Brian at (317)536-1402 or kathy@indypolicefoundation.org.
