IMPD released results of their 2013 Summer Initiative.
Chief Rick Hite was joined by Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry and U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett. The report states that city crime is concentrated in five areas within a two mile radius. Between April 7th and July 7th of this year, police made 435 arrests resulting in 976 charges, seized 66 firearms and referred 13 cases to the U. S. Attorney. They also spotlighted ten of the most violent individuals who have a combined 177 felony arrests.
