To Protect - To Serve - To Reassure

Members of the Green Oak Police Department provide community oriented policing service to over 16,000 township residents, as well as to those who visit or pass through our community. Police services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your police department is ready to serve you. Click here for the Police department's 2005 Year End Report. 

We have a staff of highly skilled dedicated people, some of whom live and have family in this community. Their children attend area schools and family members work in local businesses. They are proud to serve our residents and visitors. We have on-staff officers who have specialized training in crime and crash scene investigations, criminal interviews, school T.E.A.M. (teaching, educating and mentoring), identity fraud, firearms, community policing, and many others. 

The Police Department staff consists of 12 full time officers, one administrative assistant and one full time clerical employee. 

When you dial 911, your call is automatically routed through Livingston County Central Emergency Dispatch, located in Howell, Michigan. 

Jason Pless is the Chief of Police and serves as the department's administrator. Chief Pless has been in law enforcement since 1989. He enjoys the unique challenges offered by our progressive community. He is particularly proud of his officers' record of quick response to urgent situations. 

Chief Pless arranged for the lease of two Harley-Davidson police motorcycles to further assist the department in responding to your needs. The leases for the two Harleys are being supported by local business contributions. The motorcycles are used extensively in community policing projects and for conducting patrols. They are a very visible addition to the patrol vehicle fleet. 

Green Oak Township Police Officers stand ready to respond to your request for assistance at any time, day or night. They accept this responsibility because of their dedication to duty and to the community they serve. 

Officers are on duty 24 hours per day, seven days a week. The business office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. except for holidays.
