Good Morning All, It's feeling a lot like fall today, a little rainy. We want to reminded all our followers that tonight we're going to hold our semi-annual VPAC meeting. The meeting is going to be held at the Village Hall beginning at 7:00 PM. Chief Hartrum along with Officer Schulz will be there to answer any questions that you might have concerning issues of interests. He will also be giving a short presentation on the highlights of the summer. We will also be able to update you on the Streets Project, Leaf Pick-up, etc. As always we'll provide refreshments. Hope to see all of you there. Please do your best to stay dry today!

Pentwater Police are asking for your help. While making our morning patrol we came across this attractive dog looking for his owner. He was found in front of the Village Pub. If you can help him find his owner please contact us at 231-233-7633 or at Central Dispatch 231-869-5858.

On 10-15-2017 at approximately 7:30 PM Officers from the Pentwater Police responded to a report of deer inside a house in the 300 Block of North Hancock. . Upon their arrival the Officers discovered one white tail suspect inside the residence. The suspect deer had jumped through a window to gain entry into the home. Officers immediately began negotiations and the deer left a short time later through a side door. There were several items disturbed in the house and one broken window. Nothing has been reported stolen and the deer remains at large. While this may seem humorous residents should not underestimate the amount of property damage that can be cause by deer. As we move from summer to fall deer will become more active during the early morning and evening hours. Pentwater Police want to take this opportunity to caution citizens to be alert for deer when driving and take appropriate action to avoid collision with deer if possible. Slow down during high risk time and be on the lookout for deer crossing the road.

Pentwater Police are asking for your help . . . On 10/09/2017 Pentwater police received a complaint of the driver side door from a 1995 Ford F-250 being stolen sometime between 10/09/2017 @ 2:30 PM and 10/10/2017 @ 10:00 AM. The door was removed using tools and there was little to no damage to the truck itself. The door is faded green with white striping. If anyone has any information concerning the theft or location of this door they are asked to contact the Pentwater Police Department at 231-869-4630 or through Mason / Oceana Central Dispatch at 231-869-5858.

A reminder for everyone. . .
