JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi’s capital city says it plans to work with the U.S. Department of Justice to help fight crime.
Jackson City Council President Aaron Banks says U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst extended an offer to work with local law enforcement to reduce crime.
WLBT-TV reports Banks did not specify how Hurst offered to help, but he says city leaders look forward to discussing the collaboration.
The city will also seek input from citizens before taking any action on the offer.
