(WXYZ) — Former Detroit Police Chief James Craig is calling for strengthening law enforcement amid what he labels a public safety "crisis."
He announced moves Monday to focus on policing while he prepares to formally run for governor.
The Republican appointed a team of sheriffs, lawmakers and a county prosecutor to recommend new laws.
Craig also says he will use his bully pulpit to bring attention to crime issues.
Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer later Monday will propose a plan to use federal pandemic rescue funding to boost support for police officers and curb the use of illegal guns.
