So much of our problem could be fixed if we could keep the residents of Inkster and Detroit in their own cities. There is nothing left to rob or destroy there so now they are moving in to the surrounding cities.

WE JUST DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT BEFORE. NOW WE HAVE NIXLE AND PATCH TO KEEP US INFORMED. JUST BE CAUTIOUS AND KEEP YOUR CARS OFF THE STREETS OR AT LEAST LOCK THE DOORS AND KEEP STUFF HIDDEN. CALL THE COPS IF SOMEONE COMES TO THE DOOR AND ASKS FOR RONALD MCDONALD. THE GUY IS GOING TO ROB THE PERSON WHO DOESN'T ANSWER THE DOOR. CARS PARKED WITH SOMEONE INSIDE WHO LOOK SUSPICIOUS. OR MOVE SOMEWHERE ELSE THAT PROBABLY HAS THE SAME PROBLEM.

I have an idea....how about our police officers spend a LOT more time in our neighborhood. I cringe every time I see a cop pulling someone over for speeding on Michigan Ave., Ford Road, Southfield Expressway, etc. I would much rather see them in our neighborhoods, giving out tickets to the idiots I see daily speeding down our side streets, running stop signs, shaking my windows with the those mega speakers in their cars. In doing that it would mean they would have a much greater presence and visibility in neighborhoods, thereby making them safer all around. Those intent on breaking in to cars or stealing them, or anything else would be much less likely to do so in neighborhoods where the police presence is obvious. My God, we have people being robbed on the streets and in their driveways now. Who would have thought those things would ever happen in Dearborn? Get the cops in our neighborhoods. It's the one thing, perhaps the only thing, to deter what is happening more and more and more!

I couldn't agree more....... And also we need to report any, and I mean ANY suspicious people/activity that we see ( maybe that will get the police patrolling our neighborhoods )

Yes, EJK...being a nosy neighbor pays off for everyone. Keep an eye out for cars moving slowly and peering into yards, people walking around doing the same, etc. It takes but a few second to call the police and let them know.
