On Monday, September 8, the Indianapolis City-County Council approved a 43 percent increase to the public-safety income tax. This increase was proposed by Mayor Greg Ballard, and part of the additional revenue will go toward finding additional police recruits.

This policy will not be effective until Jan. 1, 2015. The former public-safety income tax was 0.35 percent and will be raised to 0.5 percent after the policy is implemented.

To read more about where this extra money will be used in the city and what changes Mayor Ballard hopes it will cause, check out this article.
