DETROIT (AP) - The University of Detroit Mercy wants its campus safety officers to be able to help Detroit police officers help patrol neighborhoods around the school.

MLive.com reports (https://bit.ly/1Y1wMPx ) University President Antoine Garibaldi said Thursday at the Mackinac Policy Conference that he’s been working with Michigan lawmakers on a law that would allow campus police to make arrests on property that is not owned or leased by the university. House Bill 4588 was passed by the state House in May and has been referred to the Senate judiciary committee.

Garibaldi sats 95 percent of Detroit Mercy’s public safety officers once served as municipal police officers.

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan on Wednesday announced plans to pump money into a neighborhood flanked by Detroit Mercy and Marygrove College.
