Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence released the following statement following the presentation of the Indiana State Police (ISP) compensation study presented by Mercer, a global consulting company, before the State Budget Committee:
“Indiana has the finest state police force in the nation, and Hoosiers value our law enforcement community. I am grateful for the study that was presented today to the State Budget Committee on the topic of compensation for the Indiana State Police. We will use this study as we begin the process of developing the next biennial budget. As governor, I want to ensure that the compensation we provide our law enforcement community reflects the gratitude of the people of Indiana.”
In 2015, the Legislative Council directed the State Budget Committee to pursue the study of ISP salary in comparison with surrounding states and local jurisdictions. The State Budget Committee, through the State Budget Agency, engaged Mercer to assist in this study.
