LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)— The Lansing Police Department has been working hard to keep the community safe.

As a result of the collaborative work effort, so far this year they have made:

-Felony Arrest: 136
-Misdemeanor Arrest: 28
-Handguns Seized: 72
-Long Guns Seized: 9

“The Violent Crime Initiative is a great tool that continues to pro-actively work to ensure that the City of Lansing is safe and secure for our residents, workers, and visitors. They have been successful in helping reduce violent crime throughout the city, and I commend their efforts,” said Mayor Andy Schor.
