Mayor Mike Bettice (from left) and Police Chief Stan Holt accept an $11,000 Indiana Public Employers’ Plan Safety Grant from IPEP senior risk management specialist Aaron Alsup Feb. 10. The money will be used to purchase personal protective equipment, including ballistic helmets, tactical vests and medical kits, for the Batesville Police Department. With a commitment to safety and risk management, IPEP partners with its members to enhance their safety programs by providing an incentive for up to 80% of the purchase price for safety equipment or training programs to reduce or limit workers compensation exposure.
