Hey Flat Rock!!! We are excited to be participating in the Hope Not Handcuffs Program launching soon in downriver. Hope Not Handcuffs is a collaborative effort between Families Against Narcotics (FAN), law enforcement, the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority and other organizations to help those addicted to opiates and other substances. If a person comes to the police department seeking help, the Hope Not Handcuffs team will work to get them into treatment as soon as possible. To make this program a success, we need "Angel" volunteers. Angels help participants with paperwork and provide compassionate support until a treatment option is found. Hope Not Handcuffs launched in Macomb County on February 1, 2017 and has helped connect over 900 participants to treatment. Sign up to become an Angel at www.hopenothandcuffs.com. Angel training will take place on Monday, February 26th at 6:00 p.m. at the Taylor Police Department located at 23515 Goddard Road Taylor, MI. 48180. Questions: (833) 202-4673.

A SNOW EMERGENCY has been declared effective midnight tonight and will continue for an undetermined amount of time. As you know we are in the path of a major snow storm that will be dropping the white stuff on us for a long time so PLEASE make sure your vehicles are off the street so we can keep you safe by keeping our roads clear. Thanks everybody for your cooperation. BE SAFE!!!

So THIS happened Wednesday night...some of our officers decided they would help the high school with a fundraiser for National Honor Society by entering a Dodge Ball Tournament. Our only comment is they did better in the second round than they did in the first. In any case, it was all for a good cause and we all had a lot of fun. Looking forward to seeing some improvement next year, lol!!!

We want to give a big shout out, and huge Thank You to Lindsay Ratcliffe, and her parents, for providing dinner for us last night. We appreciate all the Progeria Research Foundation Michigan Chapter does to bring awareness to this rare disease and we love Lindsay, who is an amazing ambassador for this cause. Thanks again guys! The food was outstanding!!!

Hey Flat Rock!!! Posted this originally as a cover photo and just figured out how to get it in the right spot. For those that have not seen this yet, this is Officer Tetreau and Xander's first money seizure. Over $3,000 of suspected drug related money was seized as a result of several officers good police work and the K-9 nose of Xander. Great team work here!!! Congrats again to all the officers involved with this case and to Xander who certainly seems to have a nose for the business.

Hey Flat Rock!!! We want to thank the cubscouts for letting Officer Tetreau and Xander pay a visit. They had a great time and Xander loved all the "Love" he got from everyone. He's really beginning to feel like part of the Flat Rock Community Family.

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!!!!
