The Fifty Club of Fishers is proud to support the members of our local Fishers Police Department and the dedicated men and women who have chosen to serve within it. These honorable individuals are the reason we founded the Fifty Club of Fishers to improve the lives of those who protect and serve.
About the Fishers Police Department
In 1976, the Fishers Police Department began with recently retired Police Chief George Kehl as the only police officer on duty. This tiny department didn’t remain so for long. Instead, the FPD grew right along with Fishers itself, through the 80s and 90s as the town of Fishers’ police force through the recent changes as Fishers became a city in its own right.
Now, the Fishers Police Department has truly risen to the occasion as Fishers experienced rapid growth. The department employs over 100 officers dedicated to protecting and serving Fishers. As the population continues to grow, so, too will the resolve of the Fishers Police Department to honorably serve those that reside here.
Fishers Police Department Services
While the main responsibility of the Fishers Police Department is to protect the people and property of Fishers, that commitment takes many forms. Officers serve by controlling traffic, patrolling your neighborhoods and business districts, and halting any illegal or harmful activities. Responding to emergency calls within Fishers’ footprint is another primary duty these officers undertake each and every day.
However, our Fishers police officers serve the community in other ways as well, including many activities that directly impact the lives of the families that live here. For example, the Community Service Officer and Animal Control Department help keep people and animals alike safe and healthy. Other programs, like Cops & Kids, the School Resource Unit, and the Morning Call Network for seniors, provide outreach to Fishers residents of all ages.
Growth of the City of Fishers necessitated an increase in the size of our local Fishers Police Department as well as a new Police Headquarters to support it. Opened in 2018, the new Fishers Police Station supports all 100+ officers as well as stored evidence and an accompanying three-story parking garage for police vehicles. As always, the department has local citizens front-of-mind, and the new garage added two floors of free public parking to the downtown area.
The new station enables the Fishers Police Department to protect and serve Fishers and the surrounding areas in more capacities than ever before. Perhaps most importantly, the department remains ready to support the community for years to come. It’s a mission the Fifty Club of Fishers wholeheartedly supports and will continue to honor as our local law enforcement officials experience their own times of need.
