A panel of community leaders, activists, and law enforcement all agree that in order for Indy to get a handle on its record murder rate, silos will have to come down and groups will have to start doing a better job of communicating with each other.

The hour-long discussion, hosted by WISH-TV,  featured a diverse crowd of voices and the topics ranged from law enforcement to dealing with the root causes of crime.

You can watch the forum here.

Shortly afterward Indy Politics spoke with Tony Mason of the Urban League, Tanya McKenzie of Indiana Black Expo, eastside activist James Wilson, Rick Synder of the Fraternal Order of Police and DuJuan McCoy, the owner of WISH-TV.
