Detroit Police Add 90 Cops to Street Duty

August 20, 2011  | 

The Detroit Police Department plans to add an additional 90 officers to patrol duty in the coming months as part of a plan to bring greater safety to one of America's most violent cities.

Chief Ralph Godbee, Jr., announced the plan to add 50 new officers that will be funded via three-year Community Oriented Policing Services grants from the U.S. Department of Justice. The remaining 40 officers are being moved off desk duty starting Sept. 1.
