The Indianapolis Star has run a couple interesting stories this week on law enforcement. Yesterday, the article focused on the rash of upcoming retirements at the Police Department and Sheriff’s Department. One man quoted in the article says it takes ten years to get a new cop experienced enough to be seasoned. As I read the article, I envisioned all kinds of way these changes in staffing would play out in books.
Then today the article that caught my eye focused on the University of Indianapolis being chosen to be the hub for analyzing surveillance camera footage after terrorist attacks or large crimes. Hundreds of law enforcement officers will also be trained at the University of Indianapolis each year in video analysis. Experts in my own backyard. I love it!
