John Gregg on Crime

 

 


Adult Protective Services is underfunded and understaffed

Q: How will you strengthen laws to protect seniors from abuse and financial exploitation?

John R. Gregg: Abuse and exploitation of vulnerable Hoosiers is a problem that will be a focus of my administration. A look at our numbers compared to other states shows that our Adult Protective Services (APS) system is underfunded and understaffed. In office I will work with legislative leaders to make increasing funding for APS a top budget priority and support increasing penalties for abuse and financial crimes against the elderly. I've also pledged to examine and review all state law enforcement agencies. As we conduct these reviews we'll make sure that Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) , our prosecutors, and law enforcement are working together to properly protect our seniors.

Eric J. Holcomb: My administration will support county prosecutors by giving them the tools and resources they need to protect vulnerable adults at the local level.

Push community policing through federal COPS resources

The primary goal of community policing is for officers to work with residents, neighborhood groups, and public and private organizations to identify and resolve issues that affect the quality of life in specific neighborhoods, regions or entire cities. Community policing stresses prevention, early identification of potential issues--including acts of terrorism--and timely intervention to deal with problems before they become unwieldy.

The Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) is dedicated to promoting the community policing approach to law enforcement across the nation. COPS provides technical assistance and training resources, including grants, to assist local law enforcement agencies with improving community relationships and crime prevention. A Gregg/Hale administration will work with COPS to ensure Hoosier communities have access to these valuable resources for improving safety in our neighborhoods.

Transparent investigations of deadly force incidents

Unfortunately, our country has seen an increase in the number of deadly force incidents between law enforcement officers and citizens. A Gregg/Hale administration will be proactive in providing law enforcement the necessary tools and training to properly protect our citizens and themselves during volatile encounters. As Governor, John Gregg will promote investigations conducted by trained and independent law enforcement professionals to ensure a thorough, lawful and unbiased review. The Gregg/Hale team believes that in order maintain public trust and build positive bridges of communication in situations where lives are lost, transparency and thorough investigations are an essential part of the process. Governor Gregg will support an open, honest and productive environment between the public and police in order to eliminate any ambiguity and apprehension.
