On today's "All Things Considered," Host Jennifer White talks with Wayne County Sheriff, Benny Napoleon. He is one of Detroit's mayoral candidates, and he recently released what he calls his "One Square Mile Initiative" focused on reducing crime in Detroit by 50%. 

"Until we are affirmed as a save city, [crime reduction] has to be the continuous priority of anyone in leadership in this community. Recognizing we cannot do it with the number of police officers we have. Certainly we can do a better job employing people with the resource that we have, but if you are really trying to make this a safe city you can't do it with the number of people we have in this agency right now," Napoleon said.
