Threat Management Center (TMC) is a security company in Detroit, Michigan, started by Dale Brown, which performs many of the functions traditionally expected of a police department. This is particularly important in Detroit, where police response times are very long. TMC states that they receive enough income from providing security services for businesses and higher income individual clients, that they can afford to provide free or discount services for those with lower incomes. They also ask for donations.
Their stated priority is to deescalate situations as fast as possible, to avoid violence. They contrast themselves from many city police departments, who they argue jump much more quickly to violent tactics.
