INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana State Police are encouraging those who wish to make a donation to benefit the family of fallen State Trooper Aaron Smith to do so at any Indiana Members Credit Union.
The "Aaron Smith Memorial Fund" is the only official fund in Trooper Smith's name. Anyone can make a donation by stopping in the nearest IMCU branch or calling 800-556-9268. There is a branch in Trooper Smith’s hometown in Franklin.
ISP is also warning residents of a fake crowdfunding account claiming to benefit the family of fallen trooper Aaron Smith. According to ISP, they were notified of the account recently and determined it to be a scam.
Per Sgt. John Perrine of ISP, there are no crowdfunding pages or any other contribution websites benefiting Trooper Smith. The only way to donate is the memorial fund established at Indiana Members Credit Union.
