Portage Police Chief Talks About Illinois Crime Spilling Over Into NWI

The conversation about the concerns of crime spillage from Illinois into northwest Indiana continued on Tuesday on "Regionally Speaking," as Portage Police Chief Troy Williams came into the studio to talk about how his department is getting great citizen cooperation that, Chief Williams says, is leading to fewer crime reports of all types -- and addressing a shift in focus on serious issues like narcotics abuse.  Here's the conversation.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
