Metro Detroit Policing

Over the past two weeks, we’ve been sharing statistics and data around policing in Metro Detroit on our Instagram account.

A full breakdown of the data is available here.

Click here for the downloadable version of the data. This PDF contains graphics about policing in Dearborn, Livonia, Sterling Heights, Warren, Royal Oak, Ferndale, Eastpointe, The Grosse Pointes, and Inkster. We put these graphics together following our Highway Robbery report, which showed how police and courts in Metro Detroit create an ecosystem that targets Black and brown Detroiters and traps people in the cycle of fines and fees. We hope that our neighbors in Metro Detroit will find this information useful.
