INDIANAPOLIS -- The officers of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department do their best to protect the city.
So hundreds of officers are getting a measure of protection in return.
Police chief Troy Riggs was first in line Wednesday morning for a free heart scan.
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield donated more than $23,000 to pay for heart scans for 477 officers.
Of the 129 line-of-duty deaths in the country last year, 15 percent were the result of heart attacks.
The scan, which takes 30 minutes, will reveal any calcium buildup, which can be a sign of disease before a heart attack or heart failure.
