Far West Detroit Reviews

Some police departments need to hire better trust worthy men and women to patrol the city and prosecute those who does wrong when bringing danger from overseas and other states to Michigan while putting residents all who work, visit, reside and those who can't afford to move in or out from Detroit including nearby Metro Detroit Areas at risk of potential stalking danger and threat.

I am a resident in this area and have been for five years. I would like to see some remedies to the blight. I live in an apartment building and feel very safe. Their are camera's in the hallways, I wish that they had them on the outside around the building.
This is a quiet neighborhood. There are a lot of elderly people who are very concerned about all the neighbors. I am glad that I live in this area.
