[s15] Sen. Wyss Recognized for Law Enforcement Support

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (Jan. 29, 2013) — State Sen. Tom Wyss (R-Fort Wayne) recently received the Stand Your Ground award  from the Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) for his support of Hoosier law enforcement.

The award follows Wyss’ efforts last legislative session to oppose Senate Enrolled Act 1 – a law that permits a person to use force against a police officer in certain circumstances if he or she believes the officer is acting unlawfully. The IACP said almost all law enforcement groups opposed this legislation.

“Senator Wyss’ unwavering commitment to support the law enforcement agencies in the State of Indiana is nothing short of exceptional,” said Ken Ketzler, Decatur Police Chief and IACP Government Relations Co-Chairman. “This was no more evident than during last year’s legislative session, when he was one of a handful of legislators to stand against a bill detrimental to the men and women of law enforcement.”

The Stand Your Ground award was just created after this past year’s session. The IACP said it honors and recognizes those who go out of their way to protect police officers in Indiana.

“One of my main goals as a lawmaker is not only to ensure that Hoosiers are safe, but to defend the law enforcement officers who serve our state,” Wyss said. “I am grateful for the IACP’s continued support of these efforts and their constant encouragement.”

This is the third time Wyss has been recognized by the IACP. He is the only two-time recipient of the group’s Legislator of the Year award.
