JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Jackson police, city council members, and Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba are having a special meeting Tuesday to address the current crime crisis.

Topics include morale within the police department, specific goals and plan to reduce violent crime, how to best utilize 4-1-1 services, and the impact of data from the real-time crime center.

Mayor Lumumba says there is no simple fix to fight crime in Jackson, but city officials are working on a report that will outline what they are doing to address the problem.
