The mission of the Department of Code Enforcement (DCE) is to improve the quality of life in the City of Indianapolis through strategic application of civil code regulation; effective licensing, permitting, inspection, enforcement, and abatement practices; and local government oversight of property use/safety and maintenance, business, event, professional, and construction industries.

We look forward to serving you as we continue to make Indianapolis one of the most sustainable, livable, and safe cities in the Midwest.

Spanish Translation Services Needed:
DCE is soliciting bids for the services of an in-person Spanish translator at our bi-weekly Tuesday Unsafe Building hearings. Each hearing is broken into two sessions, with a translator needed at both sessions - approximately two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon, separated by a lunch break. If interested, please contact Patrick O’Connor, Contract Manager, at (317) 327-5596.


DCE would like to remind citizens of the upcoming Monumental Marathon on November 1, 2014 and the road closures which will occur. Please see attached flyer for more information.
