The Rockwood Police Department is excited to be participating in the Hope Not Handcuffs Program launching soon Downriver. Hope Not Handcuffs is a collaborative effort between Families Against Narcotics (FAN), law enforcement, Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority and other organizations to help those addicted to opiates and other substances. If a person comes to the police department seeking help, our team will work to get them into treatment as soon as possible. To make this program a success, we need “Angel” volunteers. Angels help participants with paperwork and provide compassionate support until a treatment option is found. Hope Not Handcuffs launched in Macomb County on February 1, 2017 and has helped connect over 900 participants to treatment. Sign up to become an Angel at www.hopenothandcuffs.com. Angel training will take place on Monday, February 26th at 6:00pm at the Taylor Police Department, 23515 Goddard Rd, Taylor, Michigan, 48180. Questions: (833) 202-4673.

IN CUSTODY!!! Thanks to a tip from a FaceBook follower, we were able to locate the suspects and they are now in custody. We are seeking any information on the two suspects responsible for the burglary at the laundry mat. Hopefully someone out there knows who these two are. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Rockwood Police Department.

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

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.
