A prime example of community policing at its best, the members of Mackinac Island Police Department are a group of good people interested in service to the community. Community policing is a collaborative effort between members of the community and local law enforcement to help manage and reduce crime.
In the summer, Mackinac Island’s police force expands to meet the needs of residents, employees, and visitors. Summer patrol is on foot and bicycle, with a motorized police vehicle available for emergencies.
Winter police work requires a smaller force, and a core department patrols a community of approximately 500 year-around residents, sometimes on snowmobile. The police vehicle is used to transport senior citizens to church, the medical center, the airport and to the shops downtown.
