Parolees and probationers brought in to help fight blight in Detroit's Pinehurst neighborhood

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Parolees and probationers spent Saturday cleaning up Detroit’s Pinehurst neighborhood, many of them actually committed crimes in the neighborhood.

The Michigan Department of Corrections brought in the former inmates to help remove debris from a dilapidated home and target some of the blight in the area.

Neighbors say they all pitch in to keep it clean, but there are many more locations that have become dumping grounds.
