Flat Rock Police Department News

Hey Flat Rock...From all of us here at the police department, we'd like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year!!!

HEY FLAT ROCK!!! The City has declared a snow emergency, effective 3:00 p.m. today, Wednesday December 13th, and running to 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday December 14th. A snow emergency requires all vehicles be off City streets so workers can plow the streets. This enables safe passage of emergency vehicles and safe passage for residents. Failure to remove vehicles from the street may result in a ticket being issued and the vehicle being towed. Thanks in advance for your cooperation!!! Remember, if we all work together to clear streets of vehicles, our hard working DPS employees will have a much easier time clearing the streets of snow. As a footnote, it is also a violation of Flat Rock Ordinance to plow or shovel driveway/sidewalk snow into the street. Again, this is for safety reasons and to keep our streets clean and safe. Thanks again Flat Rock and please drive careful and BE SAFE!!!

Hey Flat Rock!!! Help us welcome our newest member, Canine Xander!!! Xander's human partner is Officer Brian Tetreau. Both are still in training (we hear Brian has been a bit difficult, but Xander is keeping him in line) but will be out and about in the community more and more in the coming weeks. Please read the article for more on Xander and our regenerated Canine Program.

Hey Flat Rock!! Just want to give a great big shout out to all the people who have decorated for Halloween. Nobody does spooky and scary like Flat Rock! Great job! We also want to let you know we will be out in full force, as usual, on Halloween night in our fully marked patrol vehicles with emergency lights activated so we will be easy to see. We will also have an unmarked white Mazda out in the neighborhoods. This vehicle will have emergency lights activated and will be occupied by the Chief and Deputy Chief. As a reminder, Halloween trick or treating hours are from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. We look forward to another safe and fun Halloween night. Can't wait to see all the cool costumes and decorations in full gear!

Hey Flat Rock! Please help us in welcoming our two newest members, Deputy Chief Nicole Ford and Officer Jasper Mercure. We are happy to add a seasoned command officer and administrator in Deputy Chief Ford and a young man with roots that run deep in public service and the downriver area in Officer Mercure. Please enjoy some pictures of the swearing in of Flat Rock PD’s newest as well as their introductions at our last City Council Meeting. Have a great Tuesday everyone!!!

Happy Friday Flat Rock! As we see all the awesome decorations going up for Halloween, and the fall season, we know some of those decorations can somehow grow legs and wander off. When this happens, please call us and let us know. We use this information to direct our efforts where they can be most useful to our community. Even if you didn't see anything, just knowing what was taken, and when it was taken, can help us to stop it from happening again. Thanks Everyone, and GO RAMS!!!!

Goooood Morning Flat Rock!!! Where has the summer gone?! There's still one big family oriented party to go to before the cold weather comes.

We have received a post regarding an alleged human trafficking incident that took place at Huroc Park. We received no calls on this incident and no formal complaint has been filed. We are investigating further to determine if the post is credible and needs further investigation. As a reminder, if you see anything that you suspect may be linked to any criminal activity, PLEASE call the police department at 734-782-2496. If you believe the situation is serious call 9-1-1. We love seeing your posts and we love hearing from you on FB but if you don't call us when you see something we can't respond immediately. Thanks everyone!!!

HEY FLAT ROCK! As you make plans for what we hope is an AWESOME 2017 4th of July Independence Day celebration, please keep in mind discharge of fireworks are allowed Monday July 3rd, Tuesday July 4th, and Wednesday July 5th only. Ordinance also prohibits discharge of fireworks between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. on those days and prohibits discharge of fireworks at any time if you are under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances. The National Council on Fireworks Safety also recommends the following safety tips when using fireworks: • Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting. • A responsible adult SHOULD supervise ALL firework activities. NEVER give fireworks to children. • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Save your alcohol for after the show. • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks. • Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away. • Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles. • Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water. • Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby. • Never carry fireworks in your POCKET or shoot them into METAL or GLASS containers. • Do not experiment with homemade fireworks. • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day. HAVE FUN EVERYONE, BE RESPONSIBLE AND BE SAFE!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!
