INDIANAPOLIS - RTV6 hosted a Community Conversation on crime in Indianapolis Thursday evening, bringing city leaders together with neighborhood groups to discuss ways to address the city's crime problem.
The event, which streamed on TheIndyChannel.com and the RTV6 mobile apps, featured op-ranking community officials, including Mayor Greg Ballard, Department of Public Safety Director Troy Riggs, Indianapolis Metro Police Chief Rick Hite and Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry.
