"The Indianapolis Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 86 completed a regular business meeting this evening (05/02/2013) in which the recent arrest and allegations concerning David Bisard were discussed.
During the meeting a vote was completed by the body of the Lodge regarding the current status of his legal assistance from 2010.
As a result, legal assistance for David Bisard was rescinded by the membership of the order due to his recent personal conduct which has reflected discredit upon the lodge. David Bisard will now be responsible for all legal fees and costs moving forward.
We want to take this opportunity to extend our sympathies to the Wells, Weekly and Mills families. Our organization prays for their comfort as well as for the members of the Bisard family, during these difficult times as our City attempts to move forward.
The Indianapolis FOP holds a strong belief in due process for anyone accused of a crime, whether a citizen, an elected official, or a police officer, including David Bisard. A fair and impartial review of alleged criminal activity is critical to our system of justice. Therefore, we do not expect to have any further statement while these matters are adjudicated."
