About Woodhaven PD

Woodhaven Police DepartmentAlthough 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. In the past 4 years we have added additional officers to the force.  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 has a School Resource Officer, a narcotics task force officer, 3 Officers assigned to the DRMA SWAT team and one Officer on the DRMA Dive Team.  The Department vehicle fleet has transitioned from Ford Crown Victoria's to Ford Explorer Utility's and Ford F150 Pursuit pickups.  Officers are also equipped the latest in technology with body worn cameras, tasers and In-car computers.

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 the City of Woodhaven participates in "automatic aid" with several other communities throughout Mutual Aid.  This ensures a rapid response from neighboring agencies for support. Residents may see nearby Flat Rock Gibraltar, Trenton or Brownstown officers assisting our officers. We provide the same rapid response assistance to those neighboring agencies as well.
