Continuing to Invest in Law Enforcement

Continuing to Invest in Law Enforcement
by State Senator Vaneta Becker

In recent years, Senate Republicans have taken the lead in supporting the men and women who serve and protect us by funding additional training, providing better equipment and increasing salaries for our police officers. 

The Indiana State Police (ISP), as the state’s leading law-enforcement agency, offers assistance to nearly every law enforcement agency across the state. Yet, data shows our state troopers are among the lowest-paid law enforcement officers in Indiana.  

That’s why Senate Republicans have made it a budget priority to increase pay for the ISP. 

We must not take for granted the sacrifice law enforcement officers make each and every day. Increasing ISP pay is one of the ways the state can take care of the men and women who keep our communities safe, and I am proud to support them.


  1. I have Great Respect for the ISP and all law enforcement, unlike some other State employees I don’t see the Statehouse full of State Police Officers screaming for more money, it’s a choice to serve, they know the risks and they know what the job pays before they sign on! A Hearty Thank You to the Men and Women of the Indiana State Police! Yea, a raise in pay is a good idea!

    • I hope this legislation for better pay goes forward. I’ve family and friends who are and have been in the ISP and a raise in pay and benefits is greatly deserved.
