Detroit Board of Police Commissioners: A national example

As communities across the United States continue to struggle to balance the demands between fighting crime and holding police officers accountable for inappropriate conduct - that is "policing the police" - one of the more frequently cited examples of it being done right is Detroit with its Board of Police Commissioners.

In fact, the NBC affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth recently did a story which examined precisely how the Detroit model is successful.

After all of these years of Detroit being scorned in the national news media, I have to admit that it feels good to see coverage like this.
