Dear Colleagues in the IU Police Department,
In the wake of recent events, I would like to extend gratitude on behalf of the IUPUI campus for all that you do to keep our faculty, staff, students, and visitors safe and secure. Your commitment to our safety has the potential to put many of you in harm’s way every single day in the course of doing your job. Your calm, efficiency, and professionalism reflect your dedication to serving the public and maintaining peaceful order, and people across campus are deeply grateful.
I was delighted to visit the Police Department yesterday to express my thanks in person. To those of you whom I didn’t see yesterday, I hope our paths cross in the near future so that I can shake your hand and thank you as well.
