The Forsyth Township Police Department has dedicated itself towards decreasing the crime and accident rate for its residents, guests, and businesses. As a police department, the officers are dedicated to the highest degree of professionalism and police services. The goals of the police department would not be attainable if it wasn't for the hard working and dedicated men and women of our police department along with the members of the community that assist in making the entire community a better place to live and work.

All police officers are required to be certified by M.C.O.L.E.S. (Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards). After certification, officers must maintain a high degree continuing education to improve the services to the community. It is the belief of the department that more training and education an officer can receive, and given the correct tools, the better the officer will perform in the field.  We are continually striving  to build a stronger foundation for a community that we can all be proud to be a part of, now and for the future.
