New Detroit Police Chief Warren Evans plans on improving the reporting of crime data and bolstering 911 response times but will first examine how the troubled department deploys officers, reports the Detroit News. “We’ve all got diminishing resources and crime is driving people crazy,” he told the News.
Among other comments, Evans said, “The reporting mechanisms in the city has some flaws. The process that officers use to fill out reports has problems. There are a myriad of problems and you’ve got to find a way to try and fix them. You’ve got manpower shortages, then you’ve got some technology issues that is not the fault of any officer but it’s posing a problem.”
