We are proud to announce our participation in "No-shave November" through the "Pigs 4 Wigs" campaign.

We had a great night at Trunk or Treat! Thanks to Reserve Ofc. Salame and VIPS volunteer Donna Johnston for showcasing our VIPS vehicle.

There are 79 days until Christmas, don’t get on the naughty list! We have received complaints regarding motorists moving or driving around construction barricades on S. Ann Arbor. The barricades really do apply to all of us and if a Saline Police Officer observes a violation, it will cost the driver $155 in fees and fines along with 2 points on your driving record.

The National EAS and WEA test will be held Wednesday, October 3, 2018, beginning at 2:18 p.m. EDT. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) and Emergency Alert System (EAS) on the backup date of October 3, 2018 due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane Florence. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m. EDT. The test will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed. The WEA test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA. This is the fourth EAS nationwide test and the first national WEA test. Previous EAS national tests were conducted in November 2011, September 2016, and September 2017 in collaboration with the FCC, broadcasters, and emergency management officials in recognition of FEMA’s National Preparedness Month.

Please take a moment to review 2017 Michigan Traffic Crash Facts. Of particular concern is the marked increase in reported cell phone use as a factor in crashes. 1,028 citizens died in 314,921 crashes in 2017. Although road and vehicle conditions along with driver actions all contribute to accidents, driver error is the chief cause. We need to refocus on safe driving habits. #trafficsafety #looktwice #SLOWDOWN #donttext&drive

We are proud of our partnership with C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and the Office of Highway Safety Planning to host the Child Protective Seat certification class at the Saline Police Department. Police officers, firefighters and healthcare professionals from Michigan and Ohio are in attendance. At the conclusion of the class, we will have 2 certified car seat inspectors ready to assist our community members with the proper installation of car seats. As always, this class would not be possible without several volunteers. #safety1st #trafficsafety

Are you aware you can view reported crimes in our community? We participate in crimemapping.com through Oakland County's Courts and Law Enforcement Management Information System (CLEMIS). We posted a picture of our reported crimes for the month of August but to know what each symbol represents, follow the link and run your own report. #informed

During the month of August, Saline PD Officers issued 74 traffic citations. Their location, day of week and times are shown below. Speeding, improper lane use, disobeying traffic control devices (stop signs and red lights) are the most commonly issued violation. #slowdown

In an effort to become more transparent and keep you informed of incidents in our community, Saline PD is using Oakland County Courts and Law Enforcement Management Information Systems (CLEMIS) CrimeView Dashboard to share traffic crash, citation and crime data on a monthly basis. In August, we handled 24 traffic crashes, most of which occurred along the Michigan Ave corridor. Friday leads the day of week and the 3 o'clock PM hour appears to be the most likely time of day for accidents. Fail to Yield, Improper Backing and Fail to Stop in a Clear Assured Distance Ahead are the top 3 causes of accidents. #trafficsafety #lookbothways

We had a great morning greeting students on their first day back to school. We took a few selfies with staff and students, and sent our very own “Officer Dave” off to his first day of school as the full time School Resource Officer (SRO).

Thank you all for your support and we look forward to a safe school year!
