The Zionsville Police Department (ZPD) has announced a new crime-reduction initiative called SAFE – Strategically Applied Focus and Enforcement. The mission of the ZPD SAFE Unit is to proactively seek out the criminal element and to locate and address issues that adversely affect the safety, security and quality of life of our citizens. The SAFE Unit also serves as a resource for the ZPD and other public safety agencies and units.

The SAFE Unit will be staffed with uniformed and plain clothes officers while under the direction of the Investigations Section at ZPD. Officers in this unit will work a flexible schedule to provide the ability to adapt to contemporary crime trends or safety issues. Their work will be data-driven, proactive and precise.
