Detroit police go door-to-door for Anti-Crime Walk
DETROIT (WJBK) - Detroit police officers hit the streets -- going door to door -- to make one particular neighborhood a safer one.
The Anti-Crime Walk took officers from Wyoming to Meyers and to the Lodge Freeway.
They chose this neighborhood because it doesn't have as much community involvement as the rest of the areas of the city. Police want people to get involved.
The officers say an involved community is a safe community.
"It's just important that the community gets involved and start to know the police officers, and to just know that we're here together and it's a team effort," said Commander Johnny Thomas of the Detroit Police Department. "It'll help the community relations. It'll help the crime in the area and it'll generally make their neighborhood better."
Officers passed out information on different programs for people to get involved.
