Starbucks will close Monument Circle location, spokesperson says

The spokesperson said in an emailed statement that we regularly review partner and customer experiences in our stores.

Our local leaders are always improving store operations and creating the best experience for our community.

Indianapolis police have responded to the Starbucks address at least 11 times since the start of the year, according to IMPD data available online.

Complete data on the number of times police responded to the Monument Circle area is not currently available, IMPD said.

Downtown is one of the safest places in our city. Downtown is responsible for less than 5% of all crime in the city of Indianapolis.

"It's really unfortunate that this business is closing even though they're citing safety concerns," Burton said.

Day, middle and late shift officers, as well as off-duty officers patrol hotspot areas in the city centre.

Officers are also encouraged to maintain an open line of communication with businesses while on patrol, he added.
