DETROIT (MyTV 20 ) - City officials have decided to begin the process reopening police precincts that were closed by previous administrations. Tuesday, city council members approved over $500,000 to purchase two buildings on Conner Street to reopen the 5th police precinct.
That was one of the police stations that was originally closed back in 2005 during former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's administration. By reopening the fifth precinct, city officials hope to improve police response time and help decrease crime in our city. Once opened, the precinct will cost the city about four million dollars a year to operate.
