New digs for Detroit schools police
Detroit Public Schools has a brand-new, state-of-the-art police headquarters.
It’s part of a $42 million initiative to improve security in the school district.
The facility includes a detention center, K-9 kennels, and an alarm system that will alert officers when doors to school buildings are opened when they shouldn’t be, said DPS Police Chief Roderick Grimes:
"We have a command center that will house state-of-the-art camera systems, which will allow us to look at the interior and the exterior of every school, 24 hours a day."
Money to pay for the building’s construction came from $500.5 billion bond initiative voters approved in 2009.
