Short description:
Police Station Facilities in Indiana (MHMP), 2011 -
Shows locations of police station facilities in Indiana, derived by The Polis Center as part of several 'DMA2000 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning' (MHMP) projects, from data of the 'Hazards U.S. Multi-Hazards' (Hazus-MH MR1, v 1.1) program (data from 2003) developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This data set is more complete in many counties in Indiana than the data set for essential facilities provided by FEMA with the Hazus-MH software. Attributes include the name, address, and contact information for each facility. The Federal Emergency Management Agency awarded Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning (MHMP) Grants in 2003, 2005, and 2007 to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security. A total of 67 counties participated in the MHMP process. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000) requires every jurisdiction in the United States to perform a natural hazard risk analysis and identify mitigation strategies to reduce the losses from future disasters. By completing a plan, the jurisdictions are eligible for funding to help implement mitigation projects.
