The Police Department is open 24 hours, 7 days a week, with police officers ready to respond to emergency calls, accidents and other police-related matters.  Call the non-emergency number 248-682-2104, dispatch will contact the officer and ask them to meet you at City Hall or call you back. 


Our primary responsibilities are the safety of the public and the protection of their property.  Honor, courage, excellence, and teamwork are the core values that guide our organization. 

Honor is the value of personal and professional accountability displayed through integrity, honesty and ethical behavior.  We recognize the privilege of serving, and strive to treat everyone with dignity and respect.

Courage is the value that gives moral and mental strength to do what is right and confidence and resolve in the face of temptation and adversity.  We will not tolerate illegal or unethical conduct in the performance of our duties.

Excellence is the value of striving to be the best.  We are committed to providing the highest quality of service.  We encourage personal and professional growth through innovation, education and training.

Teamwork is the value that fosters cooperation through positive work culture and partnership with the community.  We encourage and share ideas and goals, while respecting individuality.
