Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS—THE INDIANA SENATE UNANIMOUSLY PASSED A MEASURE SPONSORED BY STATE SENATOR JIM ARNOLD (D-LAPORTE) TO IMPROVE SAFETY AND ENSURE PROTECTION FOR POLICE OFFICERS IN INDIANA. HOUSE BILL (HB) 1151 WOULD CREATE A BLUE ALERT PROGRAM FOR OFFICERS WHO ARE KILLED, HURT OR MISSING IN THE LINE OF DUTY AND ALLOWS PARTICIPATING TELEVISION AND RADIO STATIONS TO BROADCAST AND TRANSMIT INFORMATION TO THE PUBLIC ABOUT OFFICERS IN DANGER.

ARNOLD NOTED THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING COMMUNITIES RESOURCES TO HELP KEEP THE PUBLIC INFORMED AND IN TURN, PROTECT LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS.

SEN. ARNOLD: “I’m happy that the Blue Alert passed. I think it’s a long time in coming. It falls in line with the Amber Alert with children…”
