The event organizers, wanting to save a buck or two, opted for a Mt. Clemens-based rent-a-cop company to patrol the city streets for the weekend. Above, one of their finest stops a passing car to ask them their business.
The event organizers complained to residents that they were unhappy that they were asked to employ Detroit Police officers for the event, saying, "Don't they realize paying for DPD takes money from the charities?"
I suppose getting more money for
Kem charities is why they went with a Mt. Clemens-based rent-a-cop shop instead of using a Detroit security company or DPD.
