Shelby Township Police Department

The Shelby Township Police Department needs community members to actively assist us in maintaining a safe and secure community for all residents, taxpayers and visitors. To help us with this, we encourage the following:

Voice concerns about crime and disorder problems. Don’t wait until crimes occur or problems get out of control. Raise your concerns with us. If it is no an emergency situation contact our business line at 586-731-2121. If it is an emergency dial 911.


Report and provide information about crimes and suspicious activities. We need you to serve as our eyes and ears. You are in a better position to identify behavior and activities that are out of the ordinary in your residence or workplace. A quick and effective response by STPD officers is greatly assisted by accurate and timely reports of emergency or suspicious incidents. Crime prevention includes calling the STPD when you observe suspicious activity, calling if you are the victim of or become aware of a criminal incident, and informing the Department of potential public safety issues. If the STPD is not made aware of an incident we cannot provide assistance to those in need or work to prevent it from occurring again.

Community members can report criminal or suspicious activity anonymously either by calling 586-731-5154 or by reporting online at

Work with the STPD to address and solve problems. We are only as effective as the relationships and partnerships we form with the community. When we work together with the community we are in a better position to develop long-term solutions to problems by addressing the root causes of a problem rather than just responding to it as an isolated incident.
