PUBLIC SAFETY

Public Safety
The Lathrup Village Police Department offers full policing services to its residents including routine patrol, traffic enforcement, detective services, community relations, and other specialized functions. Our officers value the opportunity to provide police services that are fair, courteous and responsive. We have an open door policy. 
Today Lathrup Village , with a population of over 4,000, is a small quiet town that holds the distinction of being one of the Oakland County's safest cities. Lathrup Village is uniquely recognized as an inviting, friendly town with unique architecture and winding tree-lined streets.

Commitment
Since the inception of the Lathrup Village Police Department in 1953 there have been many changes. The Police Department has grown over the years as the City has developed. 
However, the primary focus remains the same: preventing crime and policing the community. 
We view the residents of our community as partners who deserve our care, concern, and attention. The Department is committed to reduce crime in our community and our officers have set out to do this by creating a partnership with the residents. 
Our Department is committed to a partnership with our community in providing police services. The Police Department has officers assigned to patrol, investigations, community policing, and even within task forces that are used across the Metro Detroit area. We know that police officers are held to a high standard and we strive to uphold the highest ethical ideals. We take an active role in maintaining a professional image and we serve with honesty and integrity.
