Police Services are provided by the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office under a contract with the Charter Township of Ypsilanti. Ypsilanti Township contracts for 35 Police Service Units (PSU) which consist of 35 sheriff's deputies, 5 sergeants and 1 lieutenant. In addition to uniformed patrol services, our police contract supports a Community Action Team (CAT) that investigates violent crimes, a Neighborhood Enforcement Team focused on neighborhood based issues, a traffic specialist, and a specially trained detective who operates a computer forensics lab provided by Ypsilanti Township at its police facility. The investigation of major crimes also receives support from the Detective Bureau and other collaborative support units.
Police Services Administrator Mike Radzik manages the budget for the police services contract and coordinates the efforts of the Sheriff's Office with the Township's Office of Community Standards. Director Radzik also acts as a liaison between Township residents and the Sheriff's Office and assists with decisions about resource allocation.
Ypsilanti Township is committed to providing professional and courteous law enforcement services for Township residents, business owners and visitors. The Township endorses the problem-oriented policing philosophy (POP) that is used by the Sheriff's Office to address various crime and disorder issues.
