Battle Creek City Commissioners call for special meeting on policing, crime

Lead in text: 
Request for meeting comes after questions about use of police vehicles and Battle Creek making lists of dangerous cities.
Following a barrage of attention on the city's crime rate and police department, four Battle Creek city commissioners on Tuesday called for a special meeting in the next two months to discuss both. Commissioner David Walters asked for the meeting, saying it should come in the next 60 days because it may help as the city develops its next budget.
