Follow a new reporting project from WFYI News, called Intersections, looking at the city's most distressed neighborhoods.
In 2015, the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety began an analytical approach to developing long-term solutions for reducing crime and enhancing the quality of life in some of the city’s most challenged areas.
In a multimedia series WFYI, we will explore the complex issues that intersect in these neighborhoods and meet the people who live there.
WFYI is spending time over the next several months in the neighborhoods, examining the complicated relationships -- the intersections, if you will -- between poverty, race, law enforcement and economics, and whether a new approach to stopping violence can result in meaningful change. Along the way, we’ll be telling stories about crime’s root causes, its effects, and the people whose lives it touches.
We're be posting stories at wfyi.org/intersections. There's also podcast of Intersections, available on iTunes and Stitcher. If you would like to reach out to us, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or reach us on Twitter: @WFYInews.
