Observant citizens can have a huge impact on getting ordinance violators and illegal dumpers prosecuted, our ordinance officers cannot be everywhere so concerned citizens sometimes have to be their eyes. If you see illegal dumping happening in your neighborhood take a picture or write down the description of the offenders involved as well as the make, model, and plate number of the vehicle involved. Never attempt to approach the individuals or interfere in any way, but if you can safely get the information and relay it to the non emergency line of the police department or to our ordinance officers please do so. It takes a village but the more people who are prosecuted the faster word will spread that illegal dumping will not be tolerated!

Lunch Brunch with the seniors! Contact the Inkster Commission on Aging to inquire about some of the amazing programs and outings they have to offer!

The Inkster Police Department is excited to announce that we will be participating in the 2018 National Night Out on Tuesday August 7th from 5-9pm. Everything is in the early planning stages but we will be hosting a big party in the park with giveaways, games, face painting, food, music/karaoke, and more. This will be a completely free event for our citizens so the reason I am writing this post is to extend an invite to our local entrepreneurs to set up a booth at the event. We encourage local community and youth organizations to consider applying to attend the event to help get your mission heard. While local vendors are welcome to apply for a booth you will not be able to sell items however, the idea behind national night out is to come together as a community for free so were trying to stay away from items being sold, but advertising to help drive business and name recognition for your organization is encouraged. There is no fee for a booth but all organizations must receive approval prior to the event. Interested parties can call Officer Lebo at 313-400-5387 by July 14th to express interest in attending. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign where millions of neighbors take part in the night out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August. The idea is to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out’s goal is to enhance the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. We are excited for Inkster to join in on the nationwide night out!

Today’s session of “Coffee with a Cop” went really well! We had several conversations that revolved around topics such as... -How to generate volunteers for events -How to increase voter turnout -A citizen spoke about the impact animal control officers could have on police services. -The total number a police runs a year in Inkster compared to surrounding cities. -The programs that have been implemented to encourage officers to live in Inkster. -2018 National Night Out We also had a representative from Detroit Council President Brenda Jones come out to speak about her candidates platform for the upcoming 13th district congressional seat. Next month’s session will be held on Wednesday May 9th at 6:30pm, we are changing it from Tuesday to Wednesday’s for all future conversations. I am also making next month session at 6:30pm instead of 10am so that people who work during the day can attend. Each month will alternate between 10am one month and 6:30pm the next. We strive to make ourselves available to each and every citizen and hope this will help make that happen! Please let me know if you have any questions! We hope to see you there!

Michigan State Police Sergeant Smith was kind enough to take some pictures at the Unity in the Community Easter Egg Hunt this past Saturday. Check them out, she got some really great shots. Thank you so much Sgt. Smith and also to the rest of the MSP Troopers who came out to help support Inkster! The Unity in the Community Easter Egg Hunt was a huge success. The community response was amazing and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you everyone for coming out to join in on the festivities with us, we hope you and your families enjoyed the event! A special thank you must be extended to all of the community partners that came together to make the event happen. This event was organized by the Unity in the Community Committee made up of the following organizations, The Inkster Task Force, Inkster Police Department, The Service Builders Foundation of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Eta Iota Omega Chapter, Inkster Parks and Recreation Department, Operation Refuge, Inkster Housing Resident Council, Starfish Family Services, St. Clement’s Episcopal Church & Inkster Community Foundation.

This is the Facebook page for the Inkster Ordinance Enforcement Division. I would highly recommend you like their page to stay up to date on how the Inkster Code Enforcement Officers are working to ensure code violators are brought to justice. This page is also another avenue to reach out to your Code Enforcement Officers to voice concerns and bring issues to their attention. "Code Enforcement Officers are aggressively working to identify and hold responsible those individuals who come to our city to illegally dump. Once identified and thoroughly investigated, we will take all measures available to bring these offenders to justice through ticketing, impounding vehicles, etc."

Great work by the Inkster Ordinance Enforcement! "2 illegal dumping cases were heard by the 22nd District Court this a.m. Due to Ordinance Officers thorough case work and overwhelming evidence collected, both defendants pled guilty. The Judge had some stern words for both offenders, even mentioning jail time. One offender lived in Inkster at the time of the dumping, but has since moved. The other convicted offender is from a bordering city. Both were fined $500.00 plus court costs. We all deserve to live in a clean, safe community. We're working for you! Are you helping?"

The helicopter marshmallow drop at the Unity in the Community Easter Egg Hunt was completed by Max Flight Helicopters Detroit. We were so pleased with our experience and will be sure to utilize their services again. The owner and pilot were both exceptional and worked very hard to make sure Inkster’s kids were treated to the best experience possible. The helicopter used was actually brand new and Inkster was on its first paid flight path!! We would highly recommend their company to anyone looking for helicopter services. While speaking with the company’s owner I learned they not only perform marshmallow drops but also provide sightseeing tours of Detroit’s iconic landmarks, inflight proposals, Birthday rides, charity events, and flight training. They also offer aerial photography, video, and land survey services perfect for large-scale real estate listings and commercial use, as well as mapping utilities, wildlife, and land demarcations!
