Fitting tribute

Inkster Mayor Patrick Wimberly and Police Chief William J. Ratliff were among the officials and residents  to officially celebrate the dedication and grand opening of "The Alex A. Chapman Community Policing & Training Center" Sept. 21. The building at 4310 Middlebelt Road had been vacant for many years prior to the renovation into a law enforcement training center, officials said. The totally renovated facility will also serve as a mini police station, officials noted during the dedication. The building is named in memory of the late Deputy Auxiliary Police Chief Alex Chapman who served the city for more than two decades prior to his death last year.
