Operation restore order "7 Mile Cruise"

Posted: Updated:
Today, the Detroit Police Department and its State and Federal partners launched Operation "7 Mile Cruise" along 7 Mile Road on the Cities East and West Side.  Operation "7 Mile Cruise" is a uniformed zero tolerance enforcement initiative coupled with a narcotics enforcement, targeting the criminal elements that sale narcotics, preys on residents or attempts to find safe haven in this area.  

The goal of this operation is to provide a safe environment for all citizens who reside within the neighborhoods.  We will address these concerns by purging this area of individuals who have outstanding warrants for their arrest, participate in the sale of illegal narcotics and possess illegal firearms along the 7 Mile Corridor.  
    
The 7 Mile corridor is a main thoroughfare that travels the entire City of Detroit, from East 7 Mile Road beginning at Kelly and Morang, to West 7 Mile Road ending at Five Points. Historically, the 7 Mile Corridor has been known for many types of crimes, from shootings to armed robberies, the sale of narcotics and many other related crimes.

Today, the 7 Mile corridor has been an ongoing problem with sales of narcotics by persons living within the neighborhood. This continuous problem has been a nuisance to the good, hardworking Citizens who reside in the area.

Today's operation was intended to address these concerns, eliminate the criminal elements from the neighborhood, and restore the peace to the community. The Detroit Police Department is committed to improving the quality of life for all of its citizens and we will continue our efforts in making this city one of the safest in the Country.
     
Thank you to all participating department members, agencies, media, and to the citizens of the city of Detroit. Together we will make a positive difference in our community.
