DETROIT (AP) - Police Chief James Craig on Monday plans to announce his retirement as head of the city’s police department and possibly discuss his future plans, which could include a run for political office.
Craig, who was scheduled to speak at a news conference, has had the longest tenure of any recent Detroit police chief. He was hired in 2013 by an emergency manager after the state assumed control of the financially broken city.
The Detroit native immediately set out in to restore residents’ confidence in the department, which had a history of civil rights abuses by officers against the city’s mostly Black population.

Detroit had about a dozen police chiefs since the early 1990s and five in the previous five years before Craig was hired. Several were forced out amid allegations of wrongdoing.
