Rokita Statement After Indianapolis Loses Two Police Officers


Washington, D.C.-- Congressman Todd Rokita released the following statement following the death of Deputy Chief of Investigations James Waters from the Indianapolis Police Department and Lieutenant Aaron Allan from the Southport Police Department.

"The loss of Deputy Chief James Waters and Lieutenant Aaron Allan are both substantial losses for our entire community. I have personally met with Waters to talk about the destruction opioids cause in Indiana. Both Waters and Allan were making a difference in our communities and were allies in keeping our communities safe. Both of these officers chose to put their lives on the line for the safety of families in Central Indiana. I am saddened by this substantial loss and my and Kathy's prayers are with both of their families and those serving in IMPD and the Southport Police Department. I continue to stand in support of our men and women in blue."
