INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 24, 2015) – The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Parole Impact Unit is requesting male clothing donations of any kind for their clients.

Often times the unit will encounter parolees with nothing but the prison clothes they were released in. The Parole Impact Unit believes they can reduce recidivism simply by giving them new clothes.

Any donations are much appreciated. Arrangements can be made by contacting Officer Jason Brown at 317-964-1876 or by email Jason.Brown@indy.gov.

Items may also be dropped off at 201 N. Shadeland Ave Door 1 faces South toward Gold’s Gym.

This will help the unit when coming into contact with paroles.
