Flint Increases Police Protection

City of Flint Facebook

Next week there will be extra patrols on the streets with extra officers and volunteers from the Blue Badge Program. With the 68th District Court moving back to the McCree Building, six officers will be able to hit the streets since they won’t need to be doing court security in that area anymore, according to ABC-12.

Flint Police Chief Alvern Locke says some officers will be assigned to those who are stealing scrap aluminum and copper:

‘”Right now we’re starting with two officers. If we have to increase it, we will increase it. But we need to have someone assigned to scrap.’”

In a few months volunteers from the Blue Badge program will also be out there on the streets, assisting with crowd and traffic control. Most of the trained volunteers will help out at police headquarters and mini stations.

The city is on track with trying to find more ways to increase police protection on the streets. If you do want to help and volunteer with the Blue Badge program call (810) 237-6926.
