Chief says he plans to finish his career as Detroit’s top cop
Mayor Mike Duggan this morning joined with Police Chief James Craig to announce that they have agreed to a two-year contract extension, keeping the Chief on until at least the middle of 2017. While the initial extension is for two years, Chief Craig, who was appointed in 2013 by Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, made it clear he plans to remain Detroit’s top cop for the remainder of his law enforcement career.
The move brings long-term stability to the top of the Detroit Police Department for the first time in decades, Mayor Duggan said. Prior to Chief Craig’s arrival, DPD had five police chiefs in five years.
