Explains the heavy presence the other day.
Now, why can't they do something like this every day?

Yeah and why did they explain it to the media? Now all the crooks will head to 7 mile.

wow, 200! That must be like a new DPD record!
They should have tried to do it quieter though, now everyone farther down 8 mile is getting out.
I do expect to see more things like this. Detroit can't afford to let crime stay the way it is nw with all the stuff their doing (Book Cadillac, Fort Shelby, Brodrick tower, river walk). I know none of this on on 8 mile but it's close enough.

This is hardly just a DPD sting, as mentioned, this was a multi-county crime sweep. Crime doesn't begin and end at 8 Mile, which is why multiple departments were involved. This has made that entire area along the route safer...for now.

I'd rather see them doing something along these lines, than one of those inane "seat belt enforcement zones", that are nothing more than a shakedown.

Good news. Toronto just had a huge sweep like that in some suburban housing projects and even in towns over an hour out of the city. It was a multi-police thing, to crack down on a gang.

Mcp, it seems they did a little of both, but I completely agree.

When Coleman Young told the all the crooks to hit 8 Mile Rd. He really mean it. But at the end most of them got arrested.

It's not the arrests themselves or the amount that should garner the media hype. No need to even tout a number. It's the fact that it's multiple police departments working together (what a novelty huh?) to clean up Eight Mile. Why they can't do this more often is beyond me.

Too true Smogboy, more rare than not to here about (Metro) Detroiters cooperating.

now do that 200 more times. Nice to see a general push, but in all actuality, they haven't scratched the surface of the icing. I wonder if it was a publicity stunt???

I wondered why there were two cars pulled over in only about a two block distance yesterday on 8 Mile near John R, around 5pm.
Good job! Get them off the streets and put them away!

These "quality of life" crack downs were one of the tools that worked well in NYC. I'm happy to see it.
