Press Release Central Indiana Police Foundation providing free lifesaving Trauma Bag Kits to Southern Indiana Law Enforcement Agencies

Central Indiana Police Foundation a non-profit organization formed in 2013 to support regional law enforcement agencies with equipment not routinely supported by their agencies has provided more than 4,000 Trauma Bags to central Indiana law enforcement agencies that have saved more than one hundred lives. 

“Within the first few hours the kits were initially on the streets, one was used to save a young child’s life who was struck by a stray bullet. To date the foundation has donated over 4,000 kits at a cost of $100.00 each to Central Indiana’s officers. While initially conceived for officer’s use the kits continued to be used to save lives of both officers and citizens.”
