Those of you from my generation will remember Felix the Cat. Officer Koss responded to I-96 near Levan on a report of a kitten on the freeway. He encountered the caller on the right shoulder who pointed out a small black ball huddled down next to the concrete divider (left shoulder). As you can imagine, this required strategy. Officer Koss and another officer backed their patrol cars down the shoulder to position themselves, hoping for a positive outcome. The video tells the story. Felix, later named Libby, was taken to the Humane Society where she was treated for an upper respiratory infection and was nourished back to health. The photos show Officer Koss with his rescued kitten. Nice job Officer Koss!! Libby is available for adoption at the Michigan Humane Society. The phone number of the Humane Society is 734-721-7300. Chief Caid.

Thank you for your assistance and keep up the great work!

Last Friday, May 11th, we bid farewell to a great friend, leader and police officer, Lt. Greg Winn. Greg retired after serving Livonia for over 39 years. I wish Greg and his family great happiness in his well deserved retirement. I will miss his booming voice in the halls and his dry wit. With the retirement of Lt. Winn, I had the pleasure of promoting Sgt. Josh Gilbert to Lieutenant and Detective Mark Salter to Sergeant. Congratulations to each of them and their families! Chief Caid. https://www.hometownlife.com/story/news/local/livonia/2018/05/15/always-good-street-cop-long-serving-livonia-officer-retires/603845002/

The ranks of Livonia PD grew by 10 today! On May 3rd, our newest police officers graduated from the Wayne County Regional Police Academy and today they began their orientation. The recruits were great representatives of our police department while in the 17 week academy. The recruits were leaders in their class and took top honors in many categories. Officer Mencotti was chosen as the class Captain by his peers. Pictured from top left are Officers: Mencotti, Michels, Glowacki, myself, Chisholm, Yon, Millis, Gerhardt, Mizzi, Stromberg and Mitchell. Great job and congratulations! Chief Caid

Our 4th Annual Police Memorial Ceremony on May 8th at Nehasil Park was beautiful. A great evening with great friends. Many thanks to Justice Kurtis Wilder of the Michigan Supreme Court. His keynote speech delivered a great message, reminding us to never forget the sacrifice made by our officers in the challenge to keep our communities safe. Our evening concluded in recognizing Lt. Greg Winn. Amongst his other responsibilities, he is the commanding officer of our Honor Guard. Under his leadership, LPD Honor Guard is the best of the best. An outstanding group of dedicated individuals. Lt. Winn is retiring Friday, May 11th after serving our community for over 39 years. Congratulation Lieutenant and thank you for your service. It's been MY honor to serve with you.
