INDIANAPOLIS -- The Ten Point Coalition is expanding to Indianapolis' northeast side.
The Indiana attorney general's office announced a new grant to help start the Ten Point Coalition's programs in some of the city's neighborhoods most plagued by crime.
Tuesday morning, Indiana attorney general Curtis Hill announced $50,000 dedicated to helping establish a Ten Point Coalition in the neighborhoods from 38th to 42nd streets between Post and Mitthoeffer roads.
The Ten Point Coalition works with faith-based organizations to patrol neighborhoods and try to deescalate tension at crime scenes.
An RTV6 analysis found two youth homicides (Ten Point defines "youth" as ages 14-24) within the new patrol area over the past three years, and a total of seven youth homicides in the nearby area since 2015.
The Far Eastside neighborhood as a whole in on track to end 2017 with three fewer homicides than 2016.
Hill's office is also talking with other cities around the state, like Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne to see if a program like Ten Point would work for them.
