(Michigan City, IN) Teaching kids how to be a man is one thing being done to reduce gun violence in Michigan City.
Police Chief Dion Campbell said the recently started program about responsibility, principles, and conflict resolution is for troubled youth ages 13 to 17. He said the effort involves law enforcement, the school system, and the religious community. “We had three Saturdays in a row, and we made a heavy impact on some of the young men that were before us,” Campbell reported during Wednesday's meeting of the Michigan City Police Civil Service Commission.
Campbell is scheduled to be one of the speakers at a town hall meeting this evening about the rise in gun violence and what’s being done about it. That meeting is scheduled at 6 p.m. at the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church on E. 10th Street.
