Flint police, Michigan State Police and Flint Mayor Dayne Walling speak on Tuesday, Aug. 11, during a news conference about 11 homicides since July 31. FLINT, MI -- Fifteen additional Michigan State Police troopers have been assigned to the city since June, and the commander of the MSP Flint post says they will stay in place "for the foreseeable future." "Until we get these critical shootings on the decline, it's going to be that way," said Lt.
Mayor Dayne Walling wants to hire five to 10 new police officers but says the money will have to come from other city departments. Walling, facing a wave of nine homicides in 10 days, met with the City Council in a committee meeting today, Aug. 10, asking them to help him amend the city budget and redirect money to public safety.
Michigan State Police are adding patrols to Flint and Mayor Dayne Walling says he will propose adding officers to the Flint Police Department as the death toll on city streets continues to climb Two homicides overnight pushed the number of slayings in Flint this year to 31, surpassing the number recorded in all of 2014. "I will be bringing forward options to the City Council on how the current budget could be amended to add additional police personnel by looking at the general fund and millage funds ... given the spike in gun violence," Walling said today.
