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.
"We have to stop 'picking sides,'" Winnecke said. "We need to take a deep breath as a community, step back, and have some civil dialogue."
The Mayor said he has “100 percent confidence” in Bolin and this effort.
