Wayne County Sheriff Raphael Washington told WJR, “Detroit Police do have a neighborhood police officer service, but we go in and help them with that. Quality of life issues, (like) drag racing, drifting that vehicles, do in the summer months, loitering in front of stores that add intimidation factor to our seniors, abandoned vehicles that are on on the street, they want those things removed.
