City of Grosse Pointe Farms

Public Safety (Police/Fire)


All five of the Pointes use Public Safety Departments as opposed to traditional fire and police services. In a Public Safety Department, a Public Safety Officer provides both police and fire services. In addition, the Department provides advance life support ambulance service. The Public Safety Dispatch Center is equipped with enhanced 911. All of the Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods operate under a Public Safety Mutual Aid Agreement. The Public Safety Department is specialized to include investigation, traffic safety, fire inspection and special operations.
