Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto makes his monthly visit to the program. Among the issues we'll discuss are why Pittsburgh's homicide rate is getting federal scrutiny, his executive order enacting a long-term, strategic investment and maintenance plan for city owned facilities and the recently held CEO's for Cities Innovative + Inclusive City Workshop.
Mayor Peduto presents a new approach Pittsburgh officials are working on to better regulate and diminish crime in the area:
"There's an ongoing partnership that we've created with the Department of Justice in one of the few cities around the country to create, over the next few years, the model of community policing. Our officers have been engaged in participating in community events that occur. We're working it from both ends... to be able to not only just solve crime but try to stop crime." -Mayor Bill Peduto
Also in the program, Andy Masich explains Point State Park's involvement in Pittsburgh's legacy and we'll learn how Pittsburgh is celebrating World Refugee Day, locally.
