Police Department


The Harbor Springs Police Department provides a wide range of services to the community to include incident response, traffic enforcement, traffic accident investigation, criminal investigation, crime prevention and problem solving issues before they become serious. We strive to maintain service 24 hours a day 365 days a year. In those situations when we cannot, the Emmet County Sheriff or the Michigan State Police assist us. We have officers trained as evidence technicians, in computer crimes and polygraph. We operate a seasonal marine and bicycle patrol.

Our staff includes five full time officers including the Chief and one administrative person working our front desk. We have 3 part time officers and one reserve officer that we utilize in the summer as well as when staffing shortages exist.

We do not always have someone in the office to answer the phone but you can always reach us. Call 911 even if it is not an emergency and the dispatcher will connect you to the person who is on duty. If you arrive at our front door and find it locked pick up the red phone at the door and the dispatcher will answer and get you the assistance you need. You may leave a voice mail for anyone and are welcome to leave a message on the web site or send an e mail.

We strive to provide excellent service. If we don’t meet your expectations let me know. If someone provided exceptional service it’s nice to hear that as well.
