To prepare for Thursday’s parade, DPD will park city trucks at key access points to Woodward Avenue, in areas of the largest crowds, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Although police will not release more detail on the safety precautions due to security, Second Deputy Chief Rudy Harper told the Free Press, “To people who come to the parade in Detroit, our message is the same as always” for preventing crime: ‘If you see something, say something.'”
