Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett has named 26-year IMPD veteran Bryan Roach to head the Department.

Roach replaces Troy Riggs who left IMPD last year.   He is a 26-year veteran.

Roach says his three top priorities are protecting the public, openness and transparency and building community trust.

You can hear both Hogsett and Roach in the Leon-Tailored Audio above.  It is split into two parts, the announcement and then questions from the media.
