INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Women’s Prison renamed its nursery after IMPD Officer Breann Leath Thursday, in recognition of everything she did and the sacrifices she made.

Leath was a former correctional officer at the Indiana Women’s Prison.

“We thought it would be highly appropriate for us to rename this nursery after Officer Leath,” Indiana Department of Correction Commissioner Robert E. Carter Jr. said. “And hope these babies that are born will use her memory as an inspiration.”
