Motor City Beat – July
One of the many things I love about my job is meeting, talking to and learning about new people.
In a nutshell, the consensus is the same: Detroit’s star is shining brighter and brighter every day.
Vacant lots and abandoned buildings are disappearing as people with vision buy land destined for positive uses.
Volunteers are getting together, cleaning their local neighborhoods and parks.
I know we still have work to do, but walking the streets of our Motor City I feel an energy that is refreshing, exciting & simply “cool.”
However, along with the positives, there are still concerns.
The biggest one – crime and safety.
I totally agree, but let’s not kid ourselves, break-ins, shootings, drugs, etc., are challenges faced in every city, not just in Detroit.
Starting with this issue, we will be publishing reports of incidents occurring in the city of Detroit, and recognizing how Detroit Police officers are cleaning up the city, one crime at a time – big or small, precinct by precinct.
