Detroit Police Department
Detroit Police Chief James Craig says putting officers back on 8-hour days will help.
The change will go into effect October 14.
Detroit’s Police Chief is cracking down on his own staff in an effort to improve police response times.
For the second time in six weeks, Detroit police, fire and EMS were forced to work without an operating emergency radio system.
The public expects transparency when it comes to law enforcement officials — but this may be too much information.
Officials say roughly one in every 28 Detroit residents is connected to gang activity.
There will be a 10 percent wage cut, cuts in overtime, and more.
“The days of just riding through the streets with guns on your front seats, random shootings, are over,” said James Craig.
In what was described as a crisis in the city, Detroit police, fire and EMS struggled, Friday morning, without the use of internal radio communications.
Detroit has chosen a new police chief.
