INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - During the month of February, three Code for America fellows will be in Indianapolis. They'll work with city officials to develop tools to improve data analysis, increase transparency and highlight public engagement to improve safety for all Indianapolis residents. Code for America is a national program built on the belief that government can work for the people, by the people in the 21st century. Fellows in the program are dedicated to making government services simple, effective, and easy to use.
To help kick off their month-long stay in town, three Indianapolis Code for America fellows will make up the panel for our February 6th New Economy New Rules. Join us to hear about how technology is affecting civic engagement and about their work in Indianapolis this month.

Indy is using data in innovative ways to enhance public safety. Our team looks forward to working with the Code for America fellows to better integrate data in our daily efforts to make Indy an even better place live and work."
