Officer Baugh (aka Blue Santa) spreading some holiday cheer. Merry Christmas from the Rockwood Police Department

Operation Blue Santa Starts today and runs through December 24th. Blue Santa's Elves will be checking the list to see who receives gifts from the Blue Santa.

With the fresh snow and schools being closed, we expect larger than normal crowds at the sled hill. Please do not park on the road into the park. This road needs to be kept clear for emergency vehicles. Please park in the parking areas that have been plowed.

Thank you to everyone for getting the vehicles off of the streets. DPW is still in the process of cleaning up after the snow but they are making good progress. We will advise if the snow emergency is cancelled prior to original estimates.

The City of Rockwood has declared a snow emergency effective until 4:00 PM on Thursday, December 14th. All vehicles must be removed from the roadways to allow the plows to clear the roadways for safe passage. Any vehicle left on the roadways is subject to a ticket and impound.

At last night's council meeting Randy Krause was appointed as Chief of Police and sworn in by Judge Jennifer Coleman-Hesson. Congratulations Chief

Congratulations to Chief Stephen Rowe on your retirement. Chief Rowe served the citizens and community of Rockwood for 20 years with 8 years as chief. He will truly be missed. God speed and good luck.

Chief Rowe and the entire Rockwood Police Department have been working ourselves to the bone to ensure everyone a very spooky and safe Halloween. Trick or Treating hours for the city are 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Halloween night. Parents are encouraged to make sure that all children have some sort of reflective apparel and/or glow sticks to aid in visibility.

Had a great turn out at Trunk or Treat at the Metro South Post. Hope to see everyone there next year. #halloween #police #MSP #communitypolicing

On this day, September 11th, we remember the events of that 2001 morning when the world stood still, then changed forever. The images of death and destruction as our nation was under attack. Images that will never be forgotten. The images of sacrifice and of courage. The days following this terrible day in history, saw the country come together, not as individual groups but as Americans. The country rallied around, a now sometimes forgotten phrase, "Never Forget". On this day, please take a moment to remember all of the heroes (Civilians and First Responders) that perished on September 11th, 2001. NEVER FORGOTTEN WE MUST NEVER FORGET

We have had numerous calls from people finding fawns unattended by their mothers. Please do not disturb them as the mother will return for them. Under no circumstances should you remove them from the wild or take them into your home. If you truly believe that the fawn has been abandoned, please contact the Michigan DNR, http://www.michigan.gov/dnr See attached link for information on finding fawns. https://youtu.be/zIDZMNXR9xI Additional information: http://www.friendsofwildlife.net/animal-information.html#fawns
