The Marion County prosecutor's radio show, "Crime Beat," Sunday will address the current concern about whether Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, who took office earlier this month, or Sheriff Frank Anderson should directly manage the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Anderson has overseen the IMPD since the merger of the Marion County Sheriff's Department and the Indianapolis Police Department Jan. 1, 2007, following an ordinance of the city-county council. Ballard has expressed the possibility of management of the police department going to the mayor instead.

The show - from 8 to 10 p.m. Jan. 27 on Indianapolis channel WIBC 93.1 FM - will feature commentary from Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi; Kevin Murray, Anderson's chief legal counsel and an attorney with Locke Reynolds; Scott Newman, former two-term prosecutor for Marion County, City of Indianapolis' public safety director and Mayor Ballard's point person on IMPD issues; and representatives from the Fraternal Order of Police and the Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association.

Listeners may call (317) 239-9393 during the program with questions and comments. Listeners outside of the radio's signal area can also hear the broadcast live on WIBC's Web site, http://wibc.com/streaming/streamingpage.aspx.

"Crime Beat" is a live, weekly radio program every Sunday that discusses issues of public safety, the justice system, and current events. Beginning Feb. 16, Crime Beat moves to 3 to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
