LeDuff: The NYC and LA crime fighting models


David Martin, research associate at Wayne State University’s Center for Urban Studies, is quoted in columnist Charlie LeDuff’s opinion piece on fighting crime in Detroit. "We need to change the dynamic where drugs are sold and thugs rule," said Martin, who tracks crime in Detroit. "Police have to enter those neighborhoods, reestablish order, build trust and pick off the worst of the worst."
