A letter to the IU Bloomington community from your police division

Andy Stephenson, captain of operations for IUPD-Bloomington, writes a letter to the campus community to discuss concerns shared with him. He writes: “We have all witnessed controversial and, in some cases, unlawful police conduct in media reports. Likewise, some of you have, undoubtedly, had a personal experience that may have contributed to the forming of a negative viewpoint of, not only a particular police officer, but of all police officers. The men and women of the Indiana University Police Department (IUPD) share your concern. We acknowledge and recognize your fear.”
