“I know Chief Fogarty will be missed by his department and colleagues at the city and throughout the law enforcement community. He has been instrumental in making the Carmel Police Department one of the most professional and well respected forces in the country. I have faith that Assistant Chief Green will be able to continue the tradition of excellence that was established under Chief Fogarty,” Brainard said .

While with Carmel, Chief Fogarty initiated many programs that helped our community get to know our police force better. The Citizen’s Police Academy, Teen Academy and Police Explorer’s Program allowed citizens to learn directly from our law enforcement officers various aspects of police work in our community. In addition, the Neighborhood Crime Watch has seen a steady increase in participation under Chief Fogarty. “Getting the community actively involved with its police department is important to increasing safety overall in Carmel,” said Chief Fogarty.
