The Inkster Police Department would like to remind you of the dangers of firing a weapon into the air to ring in the new year. Simply put the old adage of ‘what goes up, must come down’ applies here. Each year, tragic reports nationwide tell of unsuspecting victims being struck and tragically injured by falling bullets caused by celebratory gunfire. So please practice safe celebration and always remember to secure a safe ride home if you plan to partake in a few adult beverages! Have a safe and happy new year everyone!

On Tuesday, December 19th Inkster Police Officers accompanied 20 kids and 4 families to the Toys “R” Us in Southgate located at 14333 Eureka Rd. for the IPD’s first annual “Shop With a Cop”. Inkster Police Officers raised the money for this event by participating in “No Shave Holidays”, where they made a donation to an Inkster child in exchange for not shaving their beard throughout the holiday months. Thank you so much to SMART for their partnership as well as Toys “R” Us of Southgate for going above and beyond for our families. Toys “R” Us went all out, each person was given a Santa hat to wear while they shopped, a dedicated lane to use during check out, and a visit from Geoffrey the Giraffe while they enjoyed cookies and punch after their shopping was complete. It was truly an amazing day, the officers and children had so much fun hitting the aisles and filling their baskets, we couldn’t be more grateful. We would like to thank each and every officer for coming out of their own pocket and taking the time out of their days during the busy holiday season to make this all happen, we couldn’t do it without you, it’s amazing what you can accomplish when we all come together. From all of us at the Inkster Police Department have a safe and wonderful holiday season! P.S. More pictures will be posted once our photographer finishes making them beautiful!
