Mayor Dave Bing Wants Officers To Live In Detroit

DETROIT (WWJ) – These brave women and men already work in the city of Detroit, and now, Mayor Dave Bing wants police officers to live in the city as well.

Bing has been pretty vocal about his desire to get police officers to move back into the city and now he’s taking action by announcing an incentive plan to get them to live where they work.

In 1999, the state legislature revoked a controversial rule that required Detroit police officers to live in the city.

Bing’s announcement takes place at 10:00am at City Hall. WWJ Newsradio 950 will be there to bring you all of the details on air and online at CBS
