Lansing police may soon get some help patrolling city streets
Some Ingham County sheriff’s deputies may soon be patrolling Lansing city streets.
The sheriff’s department wants to assign up to four deputies to work part time in the capitol city.
Budget problems forced the city to lay off 36 police officers earlier this year.
Teresa Szymanski is Lansing’s chief of police. She says the added officers would be welcome.
“Would we like more? Absolutely. Is it good? It’s very good," says Szymanski.
The deputies would be involved in making traffic stops and writing tickets one or two days a week.
The Lansing city council and the Ingham County Commission must both approve the proposal.
