Six specialized Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department investigative units are being disbanded. The 65 detectives who
work in those divisions are being reassigned to work at the district level. Vehicle theft, aggravated assault, robbery, organized
crime, financial crime and juvenile units are being decentralized. Public Safety Director Dr. Frank Straub said the community
is best-served by detectives with a wide range of investigative experience stationed at the community level. The police union
disagrees with the decision.
