About Chief James Craig
Chief James Craig exercises executive leadership and management of 3,050 sworn and civilian personnel. Appointed by an Emergency Manager during pre and post bankruptcy of the city of Detroit. At the time of my appointment, I was faced with significant decline in employee morale, along with a high attrition rate, restoring community confidence in the Department, continued rise in overall crime, and a Federal Consent Decree that had been in place for eleven years.
Over the four and half years, we have realized a steady decline in both overall and violent crime. While we are pleased with our progress we are not prepared to claim success. Confidence in the Department has been restored in part, due to the establishment of Neighborhood Police Officers and the perception by many is that Detroit is a safer city, which is supported by the crime statistics. Our Green Light Detroit and CeaseFire Detroit have been great strategies in reducing our violent crime. Our work with our youth community and innovative approaches in working with traditional and social media, have opened many opportunities for honest discourse with a young adult community.
Creating an “environment of excitement” through promotions, creation of new positions, has had a positive impact on morale, reduced attrition, and enhanced our recruitment and hiring. The establishment of a new command and executive team, was a big part of the excitement that also resulted in ending the Consent Decree. The Detroit Police Department continues to strive for excellence and it has been reflected in the commitment and dedication of the men and women of this great police department.
