Take the Blue Pledge - 13 WTHR Indianapolis

The Blue Pledge against Crime in Indiana

We all feel it. The pain of rising crime in our community, taking the lives of our neighbors and our police officers. It's time to take our community back. Support our Police and build safer neighborhoods. Take the Blue Pledge against crime!

I PLEDGE TO:

- Take a Stand. Make the call. If I see suspicious activity, call 9-1-1.
- Call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS, if I see non-emergency gang or drug activity

Our community is too great to be ravaged by crime. All of us must do our part… so join us,
and let's get busy making our home a safer place.

Tell us Your Crime Concern

As part of WTHR's Blue Pledge campaign, we're asking you to report your specific crime concerns on this interactive map. Let us know what's happening in your neighborhood by clicking on the location and filling out the form. Then we'll investigate and follow up to find out how law enforcement is responding.

This map is designed to be a useful tool so you can see community concerns, and connect with others in your neighborhood. If you see something suspicious, call 911. Also consider starting or getting involved with an existing Neighborhood Crime Watch – and take the Blue Pledge.

Please note that this map won't report your concerns to police. You still need to call 911. If you're in Indianapolis, you can report ongoing problems to the Mayor's Action Center. Also, because we approve all reports, it may take up to one day before your report appears on the map. Be sure to zoom in to see all reports.

Nextdoor is another helpful option to connect with neighbors.
