Attorney General Curtis Hill this week hosted crime prevention forums in Jeffersonville and Evansville as part of a listening tour visiting 14 cities across the Hoosier state. The purpose of the tour is to facilitate conversations aimed at developing solutions to residents’ crime-related concerns. The tour kicked off last month in Fort Wayne and will continue next month in Gary and Lafayette.
“When we come together to listen, learn and understand the problems facing our communities, we can better address the issues facing our state,” Attorney General Hill said. “Each stop on this crime prevention listening tour has been unique to each city. I am looking forward to traveling across the state hearing from community members and looking into how we can help prevent crime. With collaboration and teamwork, we can make stronger communities. My office will continue working to protect the rights, freedoms, and safety of Hoosiers statewide.”
The Office of the Attorney General will collect feedback at each forum and present findings at the office’s 10th Annual Drug Abuse Symposium on Oct. 29-30.
