On September 20 and 21, 2012, the Forum on Contemporary Issues in Society (FOCIS) at Wayne State University will present City Under Siege: A University Forum on the Crime Crisis in Detroit. The two-day symposium takes place on our Detroit campus and explores the concept of community policing as a strategy for reducing crime in urban areas such as Detroit.

The program will feature a variety of speakers and panelists including William J. Bratton, author and former Chief of Police for Los Angeles, California. Mr. Bratton, who also served as Police Commissioner for the cities of New York and Boston, will deliver the keynote address on the morning of September 21. Barbara McQuade, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, and Ralph Godbee, Chief of the Detroit Police Department also have agreed to participate in the program.
