Orchard Lake Police Department News

It’s looking like we may see our first snow of the season tomorrow. Although no significant accumulation is expected, please leave some extra time and take it slow.

A great reminder from the fire department:

For the month of November, the Orchard Lake Police Department is supporting “Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan.” The initiative “Pigs 4 Wigs” was developed to raise cancer awareness and generate funds to benefit children living with ailments that affect their hair. As visible public figures, members of the Orchard Lake Police Department will be growing their facial hair as a sign of support. For every $800 raised one deserving child will be given a free hair prosthesis and services. The Orchard Lake Police Department and Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan thank you for your support and generosity!

From Chief George: The Orchard Lake Police Department Announces the “Be the Match Challenge” In response to the law enforcement Lip Sync Challenge, the Berkley Department of Public Safety is hosting a “Be the Match” bone marrow registry challenge starting on October 2, 2018. Berkley DPS would like to challenge all law enforcement agencies in Oakland County to see which department can register the most new donors to the bone marrow registry. The number of donors each department registers will be tallied in three months to determine the winner. In December 2015, a Berkley public safety officer was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). He has been in remission after receiving five months of treatment. While he was fortunate enough not to need a stem cell transplant, his cousin now has AML and is in desperate need of a stem cell match. Each of the 39 law enforcement agencies in Oakland County will be given their own “BDPSChallenge” link that their residents can use to order “Be the Match” cheek swab kits. Each kit will be sent to their homes where they can perform the mouth swabs to determine if they are a match for someone in need. The kits come with directions on how to perform the swab, and a postage paid envelope to return it. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! Orchard Lake Police Department link is: Https://join.bethematch.org/BDPSChallengeOL There are age and health guidelines to participate. Participants must be between the ages of 18-44, in relatively good health, and most importantly, willing to follow through with the process if they are ever selected as a match for a patient. Being a bone marrow match can save a life and cure someone of their blood cancer. To find out more about “Be the Match,” please go to www.bethematch.org.

Per Chief Joe George, on today’s date at 2:43 PM, Orchard Lake Police and West Bloomfield Fire were dispatched to 5652 Pontiac Trail in reference to a helicopter crash reported in the area. Upon arrival, responding units found the helicopter down on its side. A small fire was extinguished and the helicopter had to be pushed over to extract the pilot. The pilot was found to be the lone occupant of the helicopter and was conscious and alert as he was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A preliminary interview of the pilot revealed that the aircraft is privately owned and as the pilot was coming in for a landing, the helicopter went into a spin and subsequently crashed. There were no other injuries or property damage reported. The FAA is currently on scene conducting an investigation. Great job Sgt. Banks, Ofc. Frost, and WBFD for their quick response!
