It appears that the summer plan is being carried out by the Detroit Police Department.
Officials say the interim chief will also discuss Thursday how police are addressing the ongoing problem of illegal drag racing in the city.
The press conference comes a few days after Detroit Police Commissioner Willie Burton asked Greektown visitors and residents to end the violence after a major brawl broke out in the neighborhood this month. The brawl was one of several that went viral between late May and early June this year.
After the recent violence in downtown Detroit, the police decided to put in place a new plan that included a zero tolerance policy for any kind of illegal activity in Greektown. Officials also considered closing some streets in Greektown to control the flow of people.
