IMPD Chief Taylor announces appointments to General Orders Board
INDIANAPOLIS – (February 5, 2021) Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Chief Randal Taylor announced appointments to the General Orders Board: Bryan Roach and David Robinson.
“These law enforcement professionals represent more than 50 combined years of service to the people of Indianapolis and have been integral in IMPD’s efforts to build community trust and develop police-neighborhood partnerships focused on reducing violence,” said Chief Taylor.“I am confident they will spend their time on the General Orders Board developing the kinds of policies that our community asks of us while also ensuring the women and men of the IMPD are safe and supported.”
Captain David Robinson is a 25-year veteran of IPD/IMPD, and has served in Operations, Internal Affairs, Professional Standards, Special Events, and as the Deputy Chief of Investigations. He has been assigned to the Administration Division since 2017. Captain Robinson is a veteran of the U.S. Army, holds a bachelor’s degree from IUPUI and a master’s degree from the University of Indianapolis.
Bryan Roach served on IPD/IMPD for 28 years, holding every rank, merit and appointed, most recently serving as Chief of Police from 2017 until he retired at the end of 2019. Roach’s tenure as chief was marked by an emphasis on criminal justice reform and a community-focused, grassroots public safety strategy. During this time, he led the return to citywide community-based beat policing and oversaw the creation of the Mobile Crisis Assistance Teams (MCAT) – focused on treating, rather than jailing, individuals suffering from mental health issues – as well as the launch of the Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) – which convenes federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to identify serial shooters for investigation and prosecution. He is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Executive Institute and National Academy and was awarded two Medals of Valor and a Medal of Merit.
