Troy Riggs Bails As Public Safety Director
This isn't real surprising. Mayor Greg Ballard's Public Safety Director Troy Riggs, who proved to be all talk and no action after taking over for his controversial predecessor, Frank Straub, announced he's bailing out early. Apparently IUPUI has a bunch of money to blow with those skyrocketing tuition fees and created a six-figure make-work job for him in public safety research and outreach. IU's Public Policy Institute Director Mark Lawrance says the university found value in Riggs' "holistic approach" to public safety and crime prevention using data-driven resources." Have you ever noticed these guys always toss out the word "holistic" whenever they're trying to sound intelligent saying something that sets off the BS detector?
