INDIANAPOLIS - The community continued to show their love and support for slain Officer Perry Renn and the rest of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department on Monday.
Many people put up blue lights in front of their homes to show support through a Facebook group called Indy Going Blue for IMPD.
The Facebook page launched at 7 p.m. and already had more than 1,700 likes by 11 p.m.
"I am hurt and angry that there are unlawful people in this city who think it's acceptable to shoot at our city’s protectors. I don't know what else to do, so my home is going blue," part of a message posted to the page read.
Several people posted pictures of their blue lights to the page and others made promises to go out to buy blue lights Tuesday.
Members of the community also continued to visit the IMPD north district headquarters to pay their respects and leave tokens of appreciation for Renn and his family. Renn’s patrol car was adorned with flowers, thank you notes and symbols of heroism.
"We're losing too many police officers it's got to stop this violence has got to stop," concerned resident Paula Bare said. "I'm sorry he's gone it's hard and I know it's going to be hard for the family and the community just has to get around our police officers and be there to support them ... and we're glad you're here to protect us."
Renn’s wife visited the decorated patrol car Monday. She expressed her appreciation for the support through a family friend.
Renn’s visitation will take place Thursday at Crown Hill Cemetery from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and his funeral will take place Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse at 11 a.m.
Both events are open to the public.
