(INDIANAPOLIS) - While many YouTube videos referencing the Indiana State Police may be found on the popular YouTube site, none of the footage posted has been officially placed on YouTube by the state police.
That changed in August of 2014 when the official Indiana State Police Information Channel was launched. The site now has several videos posted for public viewing.
The most recent addition to the channel is the Marion County 'We Always Get Out of Our Car' support video. When IMPD Ofc. Perry Renn was shot and killed in the line of duty on July 5, 2014 a local Indianapolis TV news station personality reported the mother of the alleged murderer said "....the tragedy could have been avoided if Officer Renn would have stayed in his car; since he could see [the suspect] had a gun." Since the death of Officer Renn, police agencies across the nation have posted their own messages of support that they too will always get out of their police cars.
Regardless of a law enforcement agency being city, county, state or federal; the taxpayers expect us to get out of our cars to confront the element of society engaged in criminal acts that threaten the fabric of our society.
