The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is instituting a voluntary emergency curfew for the residents living in the Richmond Hill community between the hours of 10:00 pm and 6 am.
The voluntary curfew went into effect Sun., Nov. 11 at 10 p,m, and will continue until further notice. Because of the on-going concern for the safety of residents and to protect the incident scene as inclement weather approaches, residents are asked to be inside by 10 p,m. In addition several of the structures have been ruled uninhabitable and large debris remains thereby presenting a safety concern.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department strongly discourages bystanders or observers from coming into the area not only their safety but also the safety of Public Safety and utility workers. A continued police presence will remain in the area for an undetermined amount of time. Officers will investigate all non-residents to deter the likelihood of any criminal activity in the area.
The action taken today by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is primarily for the safety of the public and not meant as a deterrent for lawful acts. IMPD is asking that residents living in the Richmond Hill community voluntary remain inside after 10 p.m.
