Cleaning Up Crime
Should you feel safe in Detroit? It’s a question asked for years, if not decades, by Southeast Michigan’s suburban dwellers, and the answer may finally be changing.
“I think we’re heading in a positive direction,” said Andy Arena, executive director of the relatively new Detroit Crime Commission. “I feel good about our new Police Chief James Craig. I know his assistant chief, and they’re two of the brightest people I’ve ever met in law enforcement.
“The Detroit Police Department is looking at ways to bring violent crime down and address the city’s problems, and it’s different than the approach we’ve seen in the past. This isn’t 1980’s policing. It’s innovative, modern law enforcement, and this will take that department in the right direction and get more people wanting to move back to the city.”
