Community Services Unit
The Shelby Township Police Department established its Community Services Unit to take a proactive approach to crime prevention. Shelby Township officers reach out to the community at events such as the Shelby Township Art Fair, Shelby Township DDA Independence Day Fireworks, National Night Out, Shelby Township PRM Halloween Spooktacular, Shelby Township Senior Center Senior Olympics, as well as our very own Document Shred Day.
We strive to strengthen our partnerships with citizens of the business community, schools, places of worship and households. These partnerships facilitate an active sharing of information and allow law enforcement officers to educate the public on various trends in crime. We can provide training and guidance on many public safety topics such as ALICE training (that focuses on active shooter civilian response), C.P.T.E.D. security surveys, and RAD training as well as officer-facilitated talks on property theft, financial crimes, fraud and school safety.
The Community Services Unit consists of our school resource officers, members from the traffic safety bureau, detective bureau and patrol officers.
The Shelby Township Police Department recognizes the importance of community involvement and utilizes both social media and one-on-one interactions to help “humanize” the law enforcement profession.
