ELKHART, Ind. -- Elkhart's mayor is responding to a list of suggestions meant to improve the relationship between police and the community.

But his response likely isn't what the Elkhart Community Roundtable had hoped for.

They delivered a list of suggestions Thursday, including adding more minority officers, and having police live in the neighborhoods they patrol.

On Friday, Elkhart's mayor says he doesn't believe the list is the result of a full group agreement, and he says he won't take action until there is a single goal.

He also says he wants to give things time to work out naturally, and let people learn from their mistakes.

Discussions about police tensions began after an officer was beat up on Garfield Avenue last month.
