Eastpointe Police Department News

Weekly Update This is my last day of the week and will return Tuesday. Just a few things I would like to share. Have a happy and safe Halloween. Don't forget to stop by the police and fire departments for treats. Had another meeting with the school administration yesterday and discussed several matters regarding student behavior. We are in the process of implementing several plans. We will be interviewing applicants for the position of police officer on Novembver 7, 2018. We are developing a fighting on school property ordinance and an ordinance involving vaping. (minors) I want to thank our police officers and firefighters for participating in Trunk or Treat at the high school. What a turnout. We ran out of candy and will be better prepared next year. More importantly, I would like to congratulate Officers McNeil, Gijsvers, Burkall, and Piro, for arresting two individuals last night for attempted carjacking. They also recovered a firearm. The officers assisted Harper Woods Police and were directly responsible for the arrests. Have a great rest of the week. Be safe.

The police and fire departments will be passing out candy and glow necklaces tonight for Halloween. Stop by both departments on your trick or treating routes. Officers on patrol will be handing out glow necklaces as well. Have a safe Halloween. Be visible! Be safe!

This week the Eastpointe Fire Fighters took the Fire Prevention Puppet Show out to Forest Park Elementary and St Peters School. We met some great teachers and students and talked about the importance of working smoke detectors, staying low in the smoke, fire drills, and stop, drop, and roll! We really appreciated spending time in the schools talking about fire safety. SMOKE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES! Today is a good day to check the batteries.

Good Afternoon Residents: This is a breakdown for the week. Remember that our police officers and firefighters will be distributing candy and glow in the dark necklaces on Halloween. Feel free to visit the police and fire departments. Our officers will be patrolling the subdivisions passing out necklaces and making sure the kids are safe. Halloween is from 5:30-7:30 pm. This is only a guideline. If everything works out, we will have an Animal Control Officer working by next week. Our Animal Control vehicle has been cleaned, equipped, and ready to go. I will be hosting a community meeting sometime in November to discuss any issues you may have. These meetings will be held on a continual base. I want to remind you that our agnecy participates in Hope Not Handcuffs. If you know someone who suffers from addiction, they can report to our police department and we will call an "angel" who will help place them into a medical facility at no charge. Families Against Narcotics is an organization that is dear to me that I helped develop. If you are searching for any information that is related to addiction, please visit the website at familiesagainstnarcotics.org. I noticed that many residents are reporting crimes or suspicious behavior online. We do not monitor our page all the time. When in doubt, call 911 or our non-emergency number at (586) 777-6700. We still have FREE smoke detectors for our residents at the fire department. Feel free to stop by and pick one up. Have a safe and great weekend. GR

Another good point to discuss with your teen driver (or anyone who drives a car). Pay attention to the road, not your phone.

Today is a good day to talk to your teen driver about safe driving habits.

Eastpointe Fire Department is now accepting unwrapped Christmas gifts for Goodfellas. The gifts can be dropped off at the fire station at 16370 E. Nine Mile between 8:00am - 7:00 pm. The Fire Department is also accepting new smoke detectors for distribution to families in need. Give the gift of safety.

National Drug Take Back is this Saturday, October 27. Drop off your unused prescription medications at the police department anytime. We will safely dispose of them. Don't let expired or unused medications fall into the wrong hands.

Good Morning Everyone: As a reminder, Halloween is Wednesday, October 31, 2018 from 6pm-8pm. If anyone is handing out candy, please keep your porch light on. The police and fire departments will be handing out candy at their respective buildings. This year we are going to do something new. I have purchased several hundred glow in the dark necklaces for the kids to make certain they are visible when crossing the streets. Our police officers will be handing out the necklaces within their assigned subdivisions. Also, you can pick them up at the fire and police departments the day before or on Halloween. Have a good weekend. In addition, we have merged our police and fire Facebook pages in order to be more consistant with our goals of being transparent with our residents. Please encourage you family and neighbors to join. GR

UPDATE: Today near the closing of the high school, there was a fire alarm that resulted in the evacuation of students. Our fire and police immediately responded. It turns out that there was no fire but steam emitting from the building. During this time, there was a report of a male in a tan car brandishing a weapon at some students. Our officers searched the area and did not locate this described vehicle. In additon, there were conflicting statements regarding this event. The investigation will continue. Extra patrols will be in effect.

Yesterday at approximately 7:45 pm. somone had fired a BB gun at one of the SMART buses on Gratiot and Nine Mile Rd. The result was two shattered windows on the moving bus and one reported minor injury. If anyone has any information on the culprit(s), please contact our department. There was also a similiar situation reported in Roseville last night. Thanks for you assistance.

Happy Friday Everyone First of all, I want to thank Officer Anthony Golia for dedicating 25 years of his life to this city. Tony is a true reflection of the meaning of character. He will be missed. I wish him all the best. Enjoy your retirement Tony! Our fire department has several smoke detectors to pass out to our residents at no cost. If you need one, please pay them a visit at the fire station. Sounds like the barrels on 9 Mile will be vanishing soon. Had a productive meeting with the school superintendent this week. The goal is to place an officer in the high school so he can build relatioinships and trust with the students. I would also like to develop a mentoring program. Yesterday, we had a meeting at the Macomb County Animal Control. We are fully aware of our animal issues and will have a permanent solution soon. In the meantime, please be accountable for your pets and respect your neighbors. When I get caugt up, I would like to schedule a city wide meeting with our residents and discuss what is going right/wrong, and how were are going to improve the quality of life here. We will continue to have follow-up meetings to make certain that we are achieving our goals. Have a great and safe weekend-Your Director

Good Afternoon Residents: As a reminder, we are in the process of working on animal control issues. We realize that this is a high priority and are exploring all avenues. In the event you are confronted by a vicious animal, animal cruelty/neglect, dog bite, or an injured animal, you are to call 911 and our officers will respond. In the event of a barking dog complaint, you are to call the non-emergency number at (586) 777-6700. Our officers will respond and take the appropriate action.

Good Afternoon City Residents. This is my first full week here and I was honored to be sworn in this past Wednesday. This is what we are working on this week. Animal Control Services is a priority and we are in the process of finalizing this project. Please be patient. I am meeting with the ED School Superintendent next week to discuss school safety and increasing our role at all the schools within our city. My goal is to assign an officer to the high school in the near future. We are working on creating a formalized recruiting program for police and fire. We have assigned one of our officers to the Violent Crimes Task Force here in Macomb County. This is a great way to network with local, state, and federal agencies and gain the resources we need to resolve certain crimes within the community and surrounding areas. We are looking into establishing a K-9 unit. The dog will be trained in narcotic identification, tracking, and building searches. I am working on some Halloween ideas for the kids on Halloween night. More to follow. We have received grant money for drunk driving and seat belt enforcement. Our officers will be out in full force. We will be conducting liquor control decoy operations in the near future. In respect to our recent fatal fire, we are still in the process investigating the casue and origin. Please keep the family in your prayers. If any citizen has any information regarding a drug house within our city, you are encouraged to call the department. I cannot believe the potential for our police and fire departments. I will continue to post our progress. Your Director of Public Safety

Next week is Fire Prevention Week. Have you checked the batteries in your smoke detectors? Do you have smoke detectors? Have you practiced your escape plan? Do you routinely check your home for fire hazards? If it's predictable, it's preventable!

Good afternooon Eastpointe citizens and our FaceBook followers: My name is George Rouhib and I am your new Public Safety Director. I am excited to work here in Eastpointe and look forward on developing many community programs. My management style is about transparancy. It is vital that you know what is occuring within your community. I will do everything within my authority to make certain that this is a safe and welcoming community for all. Last weekend we lost two of our family members due to a house fire. They are family because we support eachother and typically share the same values and community goals. My thoughts and prayers are with the family members. A special thanks to our fire fighters and police officers for their role in this tragic situation. I have an open door policy so feel free to stop in and introduce yourself. Take care. George T. Rouhib Jr. Director of Public Safety

Update- It is with great sadness that we confirm that Anja Radosavac passed away yesterday. Please continue to support the friends and family of the Radosavacs. Fire investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire. Smoke detectors save lives. On 9/29/2018 at approximately 7:00am our dispatch received several 9-1-1 calls of a structure fire on Nevada Street near Toepfer. When police officers arrived, they found the home engulfed in flames. Officers learned that one person had escaped the fire and three family members were trapped inside. The Eastpointe Fire Department arrived on scene and rescued three people from the home. Two of the victims, a male and a female – both 40 years old, died at the scene. The surviving family members were transported to a local hospital for treatment. One victim is in critical condition, the other in stable condition. All of the victims are related. Please pray for this family. Eastpointe Police and Fire investigators are working with state and local partners to determine the cause and origin of the fire. It is unknown at this point whether there were any working smoke detectors in the home. It is extremely important to have operational smoke detectors in your home. Smoke detectors can prevent tragedy. Please check your smoke detectors today.

On 9/14/2018 at approximately 8:10am, Eastpointe Police responded to a 9-1-1 call of a shooting on Forest Street near Gratiot. Officers discovered a 56-year-old male deceased at the scene. He had been shot. Two people from the home are being interviewed at the police station. Detectives collected evidence from the scene. We are working with the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office to determine what criminal charges may be appropriate. There is no danger to the community as all the individuals involved in this incident have been identified by law enforcement.

A flash point in our lives of what we were doing, where we were, and how we were feeling...remember always, but each anniversary is a solemn day. Has it been 17 years? 2565 American civilians and 412 emergency personnel lost. 6000 more injured.......take a moment to reflect and offer a kind gesture today.
