Details of Mayor Dave Bing's plan to restructure Detroit's police department are expected to be presented next week to the city's Board of Police Commissioners.

The board postponed a vote Thursday on the plan which calls for adding two assistant police chiefs.

Board chair the Rev. Jerome Warfield met Friday with Bing and interim police chief Chester Logan and says commissioners will be prepared to make a decision on the plan. The board meets Thursday afternoons.

Last Thursday, Bing named an assistant chief for administration and an assistant chief for patrol and investigation. More than two dozen officers also will be promoted.

The changes come following last month's retirement by Chief Ralph Godbee after a female subordinate revealed the two had been in a sexual relationship.
