[ISP] Indianapolis District Calls for Service During Actic Blast
Start Date: 1/14/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/14/2014
Entry Description
Indianapolis, IN- The arctic blast that paralyzed much of Indiana last week kept area trooper’s extremely busy on the roads assisting motorists, working crashes and slide offs.

While much of the motoring public made the wise decision to wait out the storm that passed through Indiana last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday many ventured out and fell victim to the deep snow, slick roads and extreme temperatures.

In preparation for the storm, the Indiana State Police suspended most officers’ days off and had extra units working the roadways across the state. The state police setup a Crisis Action Center (CAC) in Indianapolis that was staffed 24 hours a day during the event. They tracked all major storm related incidents where state police officers responded. The CAC worked directly with the State Emergency Operations Center (EOC) providing situational awareness and resource needs.

Locally, trooper’s from the Indianapolis Post, which covers Marion, Hendricks, Boone, Shelby, Hancock, Hamilton and Johnson Counties responded to 21 personal injury and 237 property damage crashes. Troopers assisted with 322 reported slide off’s that did not result in any damage and assisted 513 motorist’s with weather related requests. Trooper’s also responded to 300 calls for service during this time period of January 5th through the 8th that was not weather related.
