Gov. Eric Holcomb says the Indiana State Police and National Guard are ready to deploy to any community around the state that requests assistance.
Holcomb says the National Guard was used over the weekend to protect state properties amid violence from a few who sought to co-opt protests over racial injustice and police brutality, particularly against black Americans.
State Police troopers were sent to more than a dozen cities around the state to support local law enforcement.
Holcomb says he’s relying on local officials to request that support.
