August 16, 2013

With seemingly competing groups of state and local police meeting to discuss violent crime in recent weeks, Lake County Sheriff John Buncich said police in Lake County are working together and are expected to release a strategy for dealing with the spike in homicides in Gary, Ind., among other issues.

Sheriff also confirmed he is running for a second term, and that he believes the path is finally clearing for consolidating 911, with the adoption of an income tax.

Researchers at Indiana University Northwest are also asking residents of Gary how they would like to solve the city’s problems. We talked to Ellen Szarleta, director of the IUN Center for Urban and Regional Excellence, who relayed the story of a 6 year old from the Delaney Housing Project.
