HEY FLAT ROCK!!! Check out this awesome video Moke Szabla did for us featuring our K-9 Officer, Brian Tetreau, and his much better looking partner (LOL) Xander!!!

Hey Flat Rock!!! One of these two is celebrating his second birthday...guess which one? If you guessed our canine officer, Xander, you'd be correct!!! Xander celebrated his 2nd birthday yesterday with his best friend, and partner, Corporal Tetreau. These two are quite a team and, as you can see in this picture, quite the goofballs at times as well, but we still love 'em both. We want to wish Xander many more happy birthdays with us as he helps keep Flat Rock, and his partner, safe. HAPPY BIRTHDAY XANDER!!!!!

Hey Flat Rock!!! SCAM ALERT!!! SCAM ALERT!!!! If you are receiving threatening calls from the "IRS", ignore them and DO NOT call them back. Callers may also say you have a refund coming and trick you into sharing personal information. DO NOT return these calls either. The IRS reminds people that they can know pretty easily when a supposed IRS caller is a fake. Here are five things the scammers often do but the IRS will not do. Any one of these five things is a tell-tale sign of a scam. The IRS will never: Call to demand immediate payment, nor will we call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.. Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card. Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying. Please share this message with EVERYBODY YOU KNOW!!! Thanks Flat Rock!!! Have a great, and safe, evening!!!

Hey Flat Rock!!! Sorry for the late post but you may have noticed we have two new stop signs on Arsenal at Vreeland. This intersection is now a 4-way stop and is marked as such. Please pay attention and make sure you stop at this intersection. Make sure you watch out for pedestrian and bicycle traffic in the area as well. Your safety is of utmost importance to us which is the reason these signs were put into place. Thanks for driving safe everyone and enjoy the rest of your day!!!

HEY FLAT ROCK! As you make plans for what we hope is an AWESOME 2018 4th of July Independence Day celebration, please keep in mind discharge of fireworks are allowed Tuesday July 3rd, Wednesday July 4th, and Thursday July 5th only. Ordinance also prohibits discharge of fireworks between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. on those days and prohibits discharge of fireworks at any time if you are under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances. The National Council on Fireworks Safety also recommends the following safety tips when using fireworks: • Know your fireworks; read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting. • A responsible adult SHOULD supervise ALL firework activities. NEVER give fireworks to children. • Alcohol and fireworks do not mix. Save your alcohol for after the show. • Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks. • Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away. • Use fireworks OUTDOORS in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles. • Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water. • Always have a bucket of water and charged water hose nearby. • Never carry fireworks in your POCKET or shoot them into METAL or GLASS containers. • Do not experiment with homemade fireworks. • Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day. HAVE FUN EVERYONE, BE RESPONSIBLE AND BE SAFE!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!

HEY FLAT ROCK!!! In an effort to keep our kids safe the Michigan State Police are beginning a safe schools initiative. You may occasionally see a trooper parked in the parking lot of your child's school. They may stop in to say hello to school staff or just hang out in the school parking lot getting caught up on paperwork. The objective is to be an added presence around our schools to help deter would-be trouble makers. So, if you see a Michigan State Police car parked in the lot of your child's school don't panic. They are just doing what we do every single day, our very best to keep our kids safe.

Hey Flat Rock!! We recently had the opportunity to participate in the first annual "Downriver Distracted Driving Awareness Program" at our very own Flat Rock Community High School. FRCHS seniors participated in activities designed to teach them about the dangers of driving while distracted, drugged, or drunk. The day long event ended with a mock crash caused by a distracted driver that was arrested. One of the victim's of the mock crash was air lifted from the high school parking lot. We want to give a huge shout out to Barbie Loretto for putting this together!!! We look forward to participating in this again next year. Be safe out there Flat Rock! DON'T DRIVE DISTRACTED!!!

So THIS happened Wednesday night...some of our officers decided they would help the high school with a fundraiser for National Honor Society by entering a Dodge Ball Tournament. Our only comment is they did better in the second round than they did in the first. In any case, it was all for a good cause and we all had a lot of fun. Looking forward to seeing some improvement next year, lol!!!

Hey Flat Rock!!! Posted this originally as a cover photo and just figured out how to get it in the right spot. For those that have not seen this yet, this is Officer Tetreau and Xander's first money seizure. Over $3,000 of suspected drug related money was seized as a result of several officers good police work and the K-9 nose of Xander. Great team work here!!! Congrats again to all the officers involved with this case and to Xander who certainly seems to have a nose for the business.

Hey Flat Rock!!! We want to thank the cubscouts for letting Officer Tetreau and Xander pay a visit. They had a great time and Xander loved all the "Love" he got from everyone. He's really beginning to feel like part of the Flat Rock Community Family.
