INDIANAPOLIS - Public visitation was on Thursday and the procession and funeral are on Friday for slain Indianapolis Officer Perry Renn.
Renn’s visitation took 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. See our map below for the funeral procession route to and from Crown Hill and Bankers Life.
A motorcade of Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department motorcycles and squad cars escorted the hearse carrying Renn's body to Crown Hill on Monday.
Officer Renn’s body will remain at Crown Hill until the funeral.
THERAPY DOGS TO COMFORT MOURNERS
Crown Hill Cemetery has reportedly asked the organization Love on a Leash to bring their therapy dogs to the visitation. The comforting dogs will be there to cuddle with mourners from 3 to 6 p.m.
Several roads will be closed Friday morning in preparation for the procession. (See our map below: The red lines indicate closed streets.)
- Pennsylvania and Delaware streets will be closed between McCarty and Washington beginning at 7 a.m.
- Delaware will remain open as long as possible according to IMPD, but will be closed at South Street by 9 a.m. IMPD said, "We hope to maintain one lane of traffic on Delaware the entire time, but that cannot be guaranteed."
- These closures (along with congested traffic in the area) are expected to last through Friday afternoon.
IMPD recommends that people coming downtown use the Ohio Street and Washington Street exits from the interstate.
