The Indianapolis Fraternal Order of Police is offering up suggestions to improve police-community relations in the wake of the Merit Board decision to reinstate two police officers who shot and killed Aaron Bailey after a high-speed chase.
FOP President Rick Snyder calls it the “Comply Now/Complain Later” campaign.
The recommendations include…
- A public information campaign to educate citizens on police interactions.
- Introducing legislation requiring the BMV to incorporate training and safe practices when intervening with law enforcement during traffic stops, vehicle crashes, and other encounters.
- Calling upon educators to develop lesson plans on dealing with police when it comes to driver’s ed.
- Work with clergy to educate the public on citizens rights and responsibilities during police interactions.
Snyder says the FOP will donate up to $25,000 of its own funds to help get these efforts off the ground.
