FOP Members Surveyed on State of IMPD


The Fraternal Order of Police has participated in a survey grading in the leadership of Public Safety Director Frank Straub and the direction of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.


Appearing on the Garrison program on WIBC Tuesday, FOP President Bill Owensby says he is looking over the results and plans to present his findings to Mayor Greg Ballard.

Owensby says the public may not learn the results of the survey until next week.  This comes as Owensby says morale in the department has "never been lower."

Two more officers are in trouble - David Dinsmore is facing new charges connected to his arrest on November 2 for allegedly driving under the influence of a prescription painkiller.

Officer David Elam was indicted Monday by a grand jury for official misconduct, failure to stop after an accident and false reporting. Elam is accused of fleeing a hit and run accident in his patrol car and then trying to cover it up by paying a private body shop to fix the damage.

Officer Dwayne Mays has not been charged as of yet for reportedly robbing a stripper.  Mays claims she backed out of a money exchange for information and tried to steal from him.
