The Police Merit Board “establishes rules and regulations for the department; develops a classification of ranks, grades, and positions for members of IMPD; and oversees the merit system.”
The Merit Board is the government body that has the power to fire officers of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Their meetings are public and take place in the City-County Building. The Board is made up of seven members: four appointees from the Mayor, one appointee from the City-County Council, and two appointees elected by officers of IMPD.
Merit Board Agendas
Agendas of Merit Board meetings are only posted on a specific bulletin board in the City-County Building. In the interests of public awareness and transparency, IMPD Transparency files public records requests to obtain agendas so that they can be posted publicly online for the community.
