About Woodhaven PD
Although Woodhaven is one of the youngest cities Downriver, its Police Department is easily one of the most sophisticated in the region. And for good reason: Rapid growth has meant a rapid expansion of services. The services provided have gone well beyond traffic control and crime investigation. The department has progressed from a traditional, re-active, police force, to a pro-active force (community policing) with the institution of several enhanced programs.
The Department features motorcycle officers, bicycle patrols, a school resource officer, and drug undercover officers. In efforts to prevent crime officers can ride department bikes after their shift is over. They take to the streets in the evenings and during the night, patrolling our subdivisions and shopping centers. Bike officers tour the major Allen and West retail corridor, checking parking lots for everything from car theft to handicapped parking violations.
The department's summer "Safety Town" program has become one of the most successful events in the community. As part of the two-week program, young children are taught various safety lessons, including those about bike riding, using electricity, fire and personal protection.
From a crime standpoint, Woodhaven's police efforts parallel the city's own growth patterns:
- More retail outlets = more retail fraud
- More homes = more patrols
- More traffic = more accidents
For those worried about the Allen Road trains delaying a response in the city, residents should remember that Downriver Mutual Aid ensures a rapid response from neighboring agencies. So seeing nearby Flat Rock Gibraltar, Trenton or Brownstown officers assisting our officers can occur. Woodhaven provides the same rapid response assistance to those neighboring agencies as well.
