Share this post

Newly-released details show a state report critical of the Gary Police Department, making a number of recommendations, including dedicating additional current officers to patrol duties. The assessment was conducted under the order of Governor Mike Pence after Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson asked Pence to send state help to assist in tackling an upswing in violent crime earlier this year. The thirteen-page review accompanied a letter to the mayor from the Governor dated Thursday in which Governor Pence offered state assistance to the Gary force with training and also processing of evidence. There has been no comment on the report from the city at this time. In the letter, Pence also said he has instructed Indiana State Police to work with the Indiana Department of Technology to review current information technology at the Gary Police Department and make recommendations to improve operations.
