Mayor makes a plea for community-wide conversation

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke is calling for a more understanding relationship between Evansville Police and the African American community.

He will meet with the Concerned Clergy of Evansville and Police Chief Billy Bolin again in the coming days to identify ways the Police can improve their interactions.
