Michigan police want Lansing to address the staff shortage
Michigan law enforcement agencies are grappling with staff shortages.
Officials from a number of police departments forwarded the news to a state grants committee in Lansing on Wednesday.
WSJM reports that Bob Stephenson, director of the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, told the committee that departments across the state are in crisis. Recruitment and retention efforts are struggling to keep up with the large number of job vacancies reported by 186 law enforcement agencies across the state.
