Bisard case gives Indy police room to improve…

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police in Indianapolis are taking steps to rebuild the department's image after a highly criticized case involving an officer who drove drunk on duty and caused a fatal crash.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has made significant policy changes since the 2010 crash involving Officer David Bisard. They include tougher rules about alcohol use on the job, clarifications to how accidents are investigated and new ways to recognize officers with personal or disciplinary issues.

Public Safety Director Troy Riggs tells The Indianapolis Star the department is moving in the right direction in its efforts to put the Bisard case behind it.

Bisard was convicted earlier this month on nine counts in the crash that killed Eric Wells and seriously injured two other motorcyclists.
