Rules and public policy committee of the Indianapolis City-County Council
November 20, 2018, 5:30 PM at 200 E. Washington Street, Rm. T241, Indianapolis, in 46204

Dear Friend:

I'm inviting you to come testify on Tuesday in support of the proposed sit/lie ordinance. On November 20, the Rules and Public Policy Committee of the Indy City-County Council will hear PROPOSAL NO. 357, 2018 – which “amends the Code to adopt new provisions prohibiting the sitting or lying upon the surface of a public right-of-way at certain times within the Downtown Mile Square on the agenda.”

I am hopeful that this important proposal, which is intended to increase the security and safety of area residents and those visiting the Downtown area, will succeed by keeping people from sitting or lying on the streets and sidewalks. Not only is safety a concern here, but the Tourism & Convention business of Indianapolis is being damaged due to visitors being harassed by aggressive panhandlers as well as area businesses having to deal with those who block their entrances and agitate their customers.

The issue of our homeless neighbors has been raised in this conversation as well, and safeguards to help get those who are in need to shelters and other places where they may receive assistance are being planned as well.

If you are concerned about keeping our Downtown corridor safe, and have the time to testify before the Rules Committee Tuesday at 5:30pm, please consider joining me and letting your feelings be known. Citizens are allowed up to two minutes to testify before the committee members. I am hopeful that advocates for the safety of our city will attend and ask our Indy Councillors to vote YES to protect our city.

Register for 2018 IMPD North District’s National Night Out
August 7, 2018

National Night Out Against Crime is an annual event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August. National Night Out Against Crime 2018 will be celebrated on Tuesday August 7th.

The introduction of “America’s Night Out Against Crime” in 1984 began as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part of this celebration.

“National Night Out” involves millions of neighbors participating across thousands of communities from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. The traditional “lights on” campaign and symbolic front porch vigils turned into a celebration across America with various events and activities including block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from Public Safety and City authorities and personnel, exhibits, youth events, safety demonstrations and seminars, in effort to heighten awareness and enhance community relations.

To register your 2018 National Night Out event please complete and send the NNO Registration Form No Later than Wednesday July 25th to:            Gerardo.Becerra@indy.gov
