'Stop Team' Funds Okayed

In East Chicago, the city council this week approved a 150-thousand dollar transfer of funds to cover police overtime costs for a new “Stop Team”. East Chicago Police Chief Mark Becker says he instituted a similar program when he was chief in Portage previously, where it freed up officers to do that which patrol officers didn't have time to do... police could respond to community concerns, like speeding in a community, and 'stop' it. You can hear more from Chief Becker online, at Region Newsmakers at regionnewsteam-dot-com.
