DETROIT -

Violence and community policing in Detroit is the focus of a two-day symposium at Wayne State University Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, US Attorney Barbara McQuade talked about what her office is doing to help the city.

McQuade gave a lecture on the efforts being done that not only zero in on enforcement, but also crime prevention. She also talked about grant funding and the money that is being brought to Detroit to address crime issues and help quell violence in the city.
