Melvindale Police Department News

A big thank you to our officers, DPW, and our citizens for making it through snowmageddon! We know we cannot make everyone happy but we sure do try our best!

SNOW EMERGENCY HAS BEEN CANCELLED! Update: DPW will be out again plowing tonight around 9pm. Our officers 👮‍♀️ will be out along with them to ticket vehicles that have not been moved. Our objective is to have our roads clear, so please move your vehicles and make DPW’s job easier. We will not ticket for blocking the sidewalk during that period and you can park on the street as soon as it has been completely plowed. Thanks for the support. ***********ATTENTION RESIDENTS******** ***********SNOW EMERGENCY DECLARED*************************** If the field house on S. Dearborn is plowed, citizens may park their vehicle (s) there. Also, we suggest that you ask a neighbor if you can park temporarily in their driveway if you do not have a driveway. We understand some citizens do not have driveways and we ask them to do their best to make arrangements. On days like today, please be aware of the following ordinance regarding parking on the street, when four or more inches of snow have fallen. Please make it easier for our dedicated DPW workers to clear our roadways. Sec. 21-32. - Snow removal; street cleaning. (a) It shall be unlawful to park any vehicle on any public street in the city after a snowfall of four inches or more has occurred and prior to the plowing of such snow. (b) It shall be unlawful to park any vehicle on any public street or portion thereof in the city on any day when such street is scheduled to be cleaned. (c) Any person violating any of the provisions of this section shall be deemed guilty of a civil infraction, subject to a fine of $40.00. Changes in the fine may be made by resolution of the city council from time to time. (Ord. No. 406, §§ 1, 2, 4, 2-4-76; Ord. No. 745, art. I, 12-16-09)

FYI: There will not be a Council meeting tonight due to lack of quorum.

According to WXYZ News and The National Weather Service there was a meteor that flew over Southeast Michigan. https://www.wxyz.com/news/bright-light-and-loud-sound-heard-throughout-southeast-michigan

FYI: We have had a report of Coyotes in the Rialto/Corbin area. We suggest you keep an eye on your pets and go outside with them.

Today we remember Sgt. Cashel Furgerson who gave his life while directing traffic at the scene of an accident on January 3rd, 1955.

New year, same goal. We strive to partner with our citizens and business partners in keeping Melvindale safe! Happy New Year!

Melvindale residents, We have had several reports of vehicles been rummaged through from 12/26/17 through 12/29/17. The majority of these reports involve unlocked doors on the vehicles that were rummaged through. Please make sure to lock your doors and keep valuable items out of your vehicles. If anyone recognizes the individual from this video clip, please call us at 313.429.1070. Thank you for always doing your part as a community!

Santa wants to wish his Melvindale Cardinals a Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone has a safe Christmas Eve! Looks like we will be having a white Christmas!

Once again, another successful year for the Melvindale Police Department's Shop with a Cop Program. We were able to take nine kids shopping for their families. We have given out gift cards to at least nine other families and counting. The community assisted us in raising almost $5,000.00 to make sure our children had a blessed holiday season. Thank you citizens of Melvindale and the Downriver Community. May you all have a Merry Christmas.

Happy Halloween! Please make sure to take extra time driving around tonight, as our little one's do not always take extra time when they are excited about getting to their next candy destination. Be safe and happy trick or treating!
