Beginning Monday, the department’s precincts and districts will close to the public from 4 p.m. until 8 a.m., officials said.

According to a department document obtained by the Free Press, several job assignments — including report clerk, desk clerk, law enforcement information network operator, security officer, timekeeper, and vehicle and building maintenance officers — will be eliminated.

The purpose of the plan, officials said, is to get more officers from behind a desk and onto the street.

“I think it’s going to work,” Detroit police Cmdr. Steve Dolunt said. “I think it’ll get the officers more involved” with citizens.

    But I guess if it makes the city safer its worth it. Hold your breath.
