What’s ahead in 2021 for law enforcement in Detroit

9 min read

Law enforcement news in 2020 was unpredictable, contentious, and scrutinized by many. 

Detroit saw a summer of civil unrest that will be remembered for generations.

Thousands of people hit the streets daily for months to protest police brutality and the treatment of Black people in the U.S. Tear gas coated the sky, rubber bullets flew, and hundreds of protesters were arrested. All the while, the novel coronavirus ran its course through Detroit, killing more people in the city than anything else aside from heart disease.  

Also in 2020, the FBI said it foiled a plot involving more than a dozen men planning to  kidnap and possibly kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer; the Detroit Police Department significantly expanded its surveillance capabilities on several fronts; Detroit had a bloody year, with a sharp increase in shootings and homicides; Wayne County’s sheriff died of COVID-19; and despite many fewer cars on the road, there was an uptick in fatal crashes and freeway shootings.
