Ten Point members, community leaders hold prayer breakfast

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Ten Point Coalition is finding ways to work with police to stop violence. Friday morning, they held a prayer breakfast at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

24-Hour News 8’s Brooke Martin was there and helped served as co-emcee of the event. The theme this year is Your Life Matters and it’s part of a city-wide campaign.

The Ten Point Coalition is made up of a group of ministers who walk neighborhoods with police. They say the breakfast helps raise money but also recognizes organizations who are trying to make a difference.

“Webster’s Boot Camp is one of the awards that will be given,” Rev. Charles Ellis with the Ten Point Coalition said. “That’s a camp that brings men together to pledge to be faithful to their families, to be better men, to be better fathers in their families. That’s a big issue that touches the crime and the violence issue.”

IMPD is doing a number of things to get young people on a better path. Saturday is the Your Life Matters – Youth Summer Jobs 5K Fun Run and Walk. It starts at 9 a.m. at the Indianapolis City Market.

24-Hour News 8 will follow groups like the Ten Point Coalition and area police departments as they work to fight these crimes in our Crime Watch 8 reports.
