WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- The West Lafayette Police Department is creating a new initiative to create more transparency within the community.
The initiative is called Ask WLPD that will take place on the City of West Lafayette's YouTube page.
The program will allow community members to ask questions to the department, where officers will respond with short 5-minute videos.
The initiative will also be used to introduce community initiatives, programs along with providing important public service announcements.
Public service videos will be posted at the beginning of each month.
To ask a question to the department, you can send an email to ASKWLPD@WESTLAFAYETTE.IN.GOV.
West Lafayette Police says this does not replace emergency services.
If you have an emergency, you should call 911.
The first video was posted Friday (7/10) and features Sergeant Sanford Swanson.
