Immediately following the private funeral services being held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, several dozen vehicles are expected to participate in a police-escorted funeral procession. The procession can be viewed via local media partners.

The procession is expected to begin at approximately 12:30 p.m. starting at Indianapolis Motor Speedway which will pass the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Headquarters, Marion County Sherriff’s Department Headquarters, East District Headquarters (201 N. Shadeland Ave) and ending at Crown Hill Cemetery Heroes of Public Safety.

Officer Breann Leath’s family, as well as her IMPD family, acknowledge and appreciate all the expressions of sympathy and compassion that have been received. In lieu of cards and flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to The Central Indiana Police Foundation, to provide a trust for her young son.

Due to ongoing restrictions related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, any residents viewing the procession for Officer Leath are reminded to follow social distancing guidelines, including not gathering in groups, maintaining a six-foot distance from others, wearing a cloth mask, cleaning hands frequently, and not touching their face when in public.

IMPD would like to thank the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Penske family for making possible the amended funeral services with full honors for Officer Leath.
