Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett named Chrystal Ratcliffe (left) and Jasmin French (right) to the General Orders Board.

Two Black women have been appointed to the board that determines policies and procedures used by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. 

The General Orders Board was reconfigured to include a civilian majority in the fall after months of protests calling for police reform. Under the new organization, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett names two citizens to the board.

He announced Friday that Jasmin French and Chrystal Ratcliffe will join the board. French is a senior manager of Ethics and Compliance at Cummins and an attorney.  Ratcliffe is a retired union activist and local nonprofit leader.

“These community leaders will play an integral role in guiding transparent, effective policy for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department,” Hogsett said in a written statement.

Two other civilian members will be voted on by the City-County Council. Two members will be named by the IMPD Chief and one by active police officers.
