Hendricks County Deputy Fred Fislar Remembered

Danville – On 04/17/2024 the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office and the law enforcement community continues to honor Deputy Fred Fislar.  Deputy Fislar died as a result of injuries he sustained while rendering aid to the driver involved in a motor vehicle crash. 

Deputy Fred Fislar was hired with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office in December of 2021.  He served in the Enforcement Division for approximately two and a half years.  He was a part of the 226th Basic Class of the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, and further served his country as a Corporal in the United States Marine Corp.  He was a graduate of Cloverdale High School.  Deputy Fred Fislar leaves behind his wife, Madi, and two young children ages 6, and six months.

Citizens are bringing flowers and other mementos to Deputy Fislar’s squad car which is ceremoniously parked in front of the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office in Danville. The amount of support and outreach from the community has been staggering and deeply appreciated.  The Indiana State FOP Memorial Team has come alongside the Fislar family and the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office to assist in coordinating final honors for Deputy Fislar.  We are hoping to have details finalized tomorrow morning about how members of the public can donate and support Deputy Fislar’s wife and two small children.  Donation information will be shared with the media in an additional release as soon as possible. 

We would like the public to please be aware that scammers may try to take advantage of these tragic circumstances and use the death of Deputy Fislar fraudulently for their own financial gain. We ask the community to only donate through reliable sources, and if they have a question about a donation method, please reach out to the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office for additional information. 

We are also working on finalizing funeral arrangements for Deputy Fislar.  We will release that information as soon as possible, with permission from Deputy Fislar’s family. 

We would like to ask our community for continued prayers and support as we grieve the loss of our brother, Fred.
