Brookside Park Residents Seeking IMPD Help
Some far eastside residents say they've had it with home invasions, abandoned houses and drug activity.
Brookside Park residents are calling on the City of Indianapolis and IMPD to beef up community police patrols and help them form a neighborhood watch group. Roxanne Torres says her home has been broken into three times in the past year. Torres says IMPD isn't really doing much to help beyond taking reports. Laurie Klinger owns a double in the area and says she can't keep renters who constantly move out because they can't stand the crime.
Both are hoping the entire community including IMPD and Marion County Prosecutor turn out for a special community meeting Saturday to come up with a battle plan before things get worse. That meeting is set for Saturday at 11 am at Oak Academy (old School 81) at 3092 Brookside Parkway North Drive.
