About the Detroit Police Department

The Detroit Police Department is the 10th largest police department in the nation.  It has over 3,700 sworn and civilian employees with an annual operating budget of over $414 million.  The Detroit Police Department is responsible for providing law enforcement service to more than 950,000 residents; over 10,000 businesses; and 258 schools in the city of Detroit, which spans 138.7 square miles.

Mark Osterman, a Detroit Police Department police officer wrote two crime thrillers: Happiness is a Green Light and Justifiable Homicide.  According to the book description from Justifiable Homicide, “In this sad aftermath, Jack began his secret war on crime. He joined the Detroit Police Department and rose through the ranks to become a detective. However, Jack's after-hours activities included a different method for reducing crime statistics. This one-man crusade served as judge, jury and executioner.

One reader of Justifiable Homicide said, “No doubt, Jack Saunders was driven to it. The justice system failed again. The child molester who beheaded his eight-year-old daughter walked free. In this sad aftermath, Jack began his secret war on crime. He joined the Detroit Police Department and rose through the ranks to become a detective. However, Jack's after-hours activities included a different method for reducing crime statistics. Serial killers, molesters, thugs and animal haters soon discovered the awful truth. Suddenly, legal loopholes vanished and fancy paperwork maneuvers were useless. No appeals or plea bargains were allowed.

Instead, justice was swift, sudden and certain. This one-man crusade served as judge, jury and executioner. Sentences were carefully crafted for each criminal; it resembled poetic justice. Detroit's crime statistics plunged. When hundreds of its criminal class simply disappeared, no one asked why. The unspoken message was clear: Choose a new career; crime doesn't pay like it once did. There was another unexpected bonus. The psychological role of victim and predator became reversed. Now criminals worried about retribution, fearful for their own safety.”
