IMPD Chief Bryan Roach Announces Retirement
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indy Metro Police Chief Bryan K. Roach has announced his retirement.
Chief Roach said Friday that he is retiring because he has "accepted a job outside of the police department and city government."
Roach has served with IMPD for nearly 29 years and was appointed police chief in 2017 by Mayor Joe Hogsett.
In a statement, Roach said:
After almost 29 years of service to the city that I love, today is bittersweet as I announce my retirement from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. The start of the new year will begin a new chapter for my family, as I have accepted a job outside of the police department and city government.
It has been an honor to have been a member of the IMPD, and I appreciate the opportunity afforded me these last three years by Mayor Hogsett to lead the department as Chief of Police. I am grateful and humbled to have led this organization and its members. IMPD has some of the best and brightest men and women working across both the civilian and sworn ranks. The care, concern, and kindness they show daily for the citizens of Indianapolis, both publicly and privately, have been and will continue to be an inspiration to me.
Mayor Hogsett will name Roach's replacement.
