INDIANAPOLIS - Locally, T-shirts have sold like hot cakes to promote the message. And nationally, a Florida police department is showing their support.
"I will always get out of my car."
The T-shirts went on sale at 9 a.m. Wednesday and by the afternoon, the Fraternal Order of Police said they had sold more than 1,000.
The shirts honoring fallen Indianapolis police (IMPD) officer Perry Renn. The back reads: "I will always get out of my car."
The movement started when the mother of the suspect in Renn's murder reportedly told another Indianapolis news organization that Renn shouldn't have gotten out of his car that day, or he wouldn't have been shot down.
There was a line at times Wednesday at the FOP on Shelby Street to buy the shirts, which cost $15 with proceeds going to the Indianapolis Police Foundation.
Many who came out to buy the shirts weren't officers, just regular citizens.
The FOP says online orders are coming in from departments across the state and country. You can buy one online here.
And just this past week, the Sarasota (Florida) Police Department made a grand gesture that has reached Indiana.
The department posted this video, showing their support for IMPD and their dedication to always getting out of their cars.
Watch the inspiring video below and follow the movement at the Twitter hashtag #IWillAlwaysGetOutOfMyCar.
