As summer heats up, IMPD says it's keeping a lid on crime. 

Metro Police arrested upwards of 60 people and confiscated four handguns Monday as part of its Coordinated Law Enforcement Activity Network also called "Clean Sweep." 

Coordinator and IMPD officer Greg Brinker says the latest arrests happened on the city's northeast side in the east 30th street area.  That's the same area where officer Greg Milburn was recently shot.  Brinker says this marks the fifth Clean Sweep that they've conducted with the help of Indiana State Police and other agencies. 

Other agencies include the FBI and Indianapolis Departments of Metropolitan Development and Code Enforcement and Marion County Health Department.  Police have arrested 144 people in the first four Clean Sweeps since last September.  Brinker says more are planned this year and that Clean Sweep is also about stressing quality of life issues in neighborhoods.
