Movement to reduce crime, make Indy more energy efficient underway

Local

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Efforts to make Indianapolis safer and more energy efficient are currently underway.

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett kicked of a second phase of the city’s “operation night light initiative” Monday morning.

Hogsett says workers will replace existing street lights to more energy-efficient LED bulbs.

The mayor says the change would not only help reduce carbon emissions but also crime.

The new bulbs will also help save money, by reducing the city’s electricity bill to half.

That money will be used to get more led bulbs to brighten dark neighborhoods.
