Detroit: Enter at Your Own Risk

Authorities in Detroit, Michigan have been posting signs and distributing flyers warning residents to be on alert because of the lack of police protection in the city. Due to the major rise of crime and violence, including homicides, authorities have designated the city of Detroit as a “War Zone.”

The Detroit Police Department has said the city is too dangerous to enter and is warning would-be-visitors to enter at their own risk.

The police department has lost more than 1,000 officers in the last 10 years. Amid the rise of violence within the city, more officers and fire fighters are leaving.

Detroit is the nation’s most violent city and the homicide rate is the highest in the country.
