LeDuff: Detroit Police Need More Money, Not Less

Posted:

The budget for the City of Detroit has been in the news for weeks. One of the departments facing a huge cut is Detroit Police.

However, as city leaders go back and forth about how much money is in the pot, FOX 2's Charlie LeDuff shows you firsthand what Detroit Police officers are forced to deal with on a day-to-day basis.

According to LeDuff, this is the most serious story he can bring you. He says we're not coming back as a people unless Detroit comes back, and the city is not coming back until crime is under control, period.

Every city leader has a report that shows while cops have been getting cut, crime has been going up.

LeDuff recently spent some time in the Eastern District where they're holding it together with bailing wire. It's a threat to both the cop's life and yours.
