Police Chief to Trim Mayor Bing's Security Staff

August 06, 2013, 9:59 PM


Mayor Dave Bing has become more of a figurehead these days, somewhat like the Prince Charles of Detroit.

So it's not so surprising that the his security staff, which is comprised of Detroit cops,  might be cut.

Fox2's Charlie LeDuff reports that Detroit Police James Craig is cutting Bing's Executive Protection Unit from 20 to six.

LeDuff reports:

Six officers isn't so bad. That's what the mayor of Los Angeles gets. In fact, the emergency manager of Detroit only has five officers assigned to him.

"There are two with me during the day. They rotate for a total of five," said Kevyn Orr.
