Law enforcement officers and first responders play a vital role in building a safer, stronger and more prosperous Indiana.
These brave public servants have been under relentless attack — physically and mentally — by radical activists and D.C. career politicians, dropping recruitment and retention to dangerous levels. Moreover, as select prosecutors and judges fail to equally apply justice across the state, law enforcement officers are seeing the very violent and repeat offenders they arrest let back onto the street, sometimes on the same day.
That is why I am proposing the Protect and Serve plan, which will provide substantial support to our first responders and ensure equal justice is applied regardless of where one lives.
My Protect and Serve plan will ensure our law enforcement officers and first responders have the resources and support they need to not just do their jobs but also thrive as our friends and neighbors.
