Dear Citizens, Business Owners, & Colleagues,
The Police Officers in Michigan City are people who put their lives on the line to protect you, your family, and your community every day.
Professional and responsible law enforcement is a philosophy that promotes a proactive approach to reducing crime and enhancing public safety. This aggressive stance against crime carries with it the responsibility to keep the public aware of crimes, scams and improving the quality of life working with our citizens to make our community safer. As Chief my personal mission and commitment to the public is to provide quality police services to our community.
The Michigan City Police offer a variety of programs for our community that heightening crime prevention awareness. Some of these initiatives are:
• Anti-crime programs such as Neighborhood Watch, Project Lifesaver, Michigan City Pill-Drop, Youth Explorer Program, and Scam and Fraud seminars.
• The ever popular "Citizen’s Police Academy" and our annual “Get More Buck for Your Bang” Gun Drive that take unwanted guns off the streets of our community. Our new “Easter Egg Hunt” was a huge success for the community and was opened to all residents of the City.
• In 2013 we reached our objective of hosting a summer camp for children called our “Youth Leadership Academy” that had an overwhelming response that we are planning on hosting annually. We also participant in the annual "Back to School Rally" assisting underprivileged children in back to school supplies.
• Your funding will also assist in supporting our K-9 program, Emergency management volunteers, our Reserve Officer Program, and a variety of other community policing activities.
