Plainfield Police Department News

Today the Plainfield Police and the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department conducted a joint training on officer involved shootings. Great training and partnership!

This week Officer John Endsley (left and Officer Chris Duffer (right) attended School Resource Officer (SRO) training in Michigan City.

Special thank you to the Indiana Department of Corrections (Plainfield Correctional Facility) for the generous donation of $600 for our K9 fund. Pictured left to right: Barbara Beyer (DOC) Captain Jill Lees (PPD), and Molly Hartzell (DOC).

Scam alert!! PPD has recently been receiving about half a dozen phone calls and one report of a person having received phone calls from the IRS stating there are charges against them and local police will come get them. One caller advised that a warrant was issued for her due to a discrepancy in tax returns. She was also advised to immediately buy Walmart gift cards. Luckily she didn’t get scammed but was upset due to the caller pretending they were the IRS. Please know this is a scam. Never buy gift cards for anyone. Any questions, please call Plainfield Police.

Plainfield PD had the honor today of having IMPD Deputy Chief Val Cunningham train local female officers on leadership. She is also the President of NAWLEE (National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives). Great networking and training! Captain Jill Lees and Detective Alyson Ritter attended from PPD.

Congratulations to our two new lateral officers who were sworn in last night by Judge James Spencer. Josh Koch (left) worked as a Reserve Officer for PPD, then went to work in Tennessee as an officer. Welcome back! Taylor Coglianese (right) comes to Plainfield Police from a police department in Texas. Welcome!

Please use caution in Plainfield construction zones this summer. This is a reminder to slow down and merge well in advance. PPD is heavily monitoring areas of construction this summer.

Officer Taylor was sworn in by the Honorable Judge Spencer of the Plainfield Town Court and received his badge from Chief Darel W. Krieger.

Congratulations to the Plainfield High School Seniors, Class of 2018! Plainfield Police School Resource Officers are protecting PHS for graduation. Pictured from left to right are: Sergeant Todd Knowles, Officer John Endsley, Officer Chris Duffer, and Captain Jill Lees.

Remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom on Memorial Day weekend. Please be safe and drive carefully.

On behalf of the Plainfield Police Department and the Plainfield Community School Corporation, in addition to all Town of Plainfield employees, we extend our heartfelt thoughts to our friends in Noblesville and Hamilton County. The PHS Class of 2018 just completed their rehearsal for tomorrow’s Commencement. While we had several police officers on hand, it was a great practice with no concerns. We look forward to a wonderful celebration tomorrow. Please know that, as always, we will have ample law enforcement officers on hand for Commencement. Some will be in uniform; others will not. We’ve had no threats and have no reason for concern, but we always ensure that safety is our top priority.

Another scam reported today. This one involves Social Security. A resident advised that her father received a letter which appeared to be an official letter from the Social Security Administration confirming his old address due to an address change and his online account set up. The resident indicated her father did not move and did not create an online account with Social Security. If something doesn't seem right, for example, you haven't moved, you haven't created a new account online, etc., please don't fall victim to a scam. Always follow up and call the organization prior to verifying any information.

Currently, we have experienced a scam where someone has used the Plainfield Police Department phone number, 317-838-3565. They advised that their relative was arrested and requested funds over the phone. This is not the Plainfield Police Department calling. Please do not give money over the phone and if you have any questions please call the Department 317-838-3565.

Please help to pass this information along to others whom you believe could be affected by the closures. Thanks!

When Officer Chris Johnson, Officer Mike Minardo, Officer Tony Hawk and Cpl. Standiford were dispatched to a report of a pig walking down the sidewalk near Al’s Donuts, they thought for sure it was just a joke. However they responded to the call anyway and much to their surprise ACTUALLY located a pig behind Al’s. With a little coaxing, they were able to get the pig into custody until it could be turned over to Hendricks County Animal Control. Sometimes it’s those little unexpected things that put a smile on an officer’s face and make the day anything but routine! We just had to share.....

Just received this beautiful cake from Target. We appreciate all of the support we continue to recieve from the Plainfield business community! Thank you!

Congratulations to David Uberto who received a Proclamation at from Town Council President Robin Brandgard at the last Town Council meeting. Commissioner Uberto served faithfully on the Plainfield Board of Police Commissioners since 2004 and assisted the group as secretary during that time. Commissioner Uberto has provided guidance and support for the three Police Chiefs during his term in office. During his tenure, he was involved in the hiring process of numerous new police officers as the Department grew, contributed during the annual day of inspection and participated in the law enforcement recognition program. Thanks for your service!

National Police Week 2018. Honoring and remembering those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.
