As we say goodbye to Lt. Aaron Allan of the Southport Police Department, we must reaffirm our commitment to the citizens that we serve along with the men and women who serve as officers that the safety of all is and has to be our first and highest priority.
As we witnessed, respect for our public safety servants has for the most part vanished from society, and those dedicated professionals like Allen, whose only desire was to help, are taken from us.
To our friends to the south, Beech Grove is with you and will always stand next to you. It will be my high honor to represent our city next Saturday when we say goodbye to our friend and dedicated servant.
Mayor of Beech Grove
