The White Lake Police Department offers these tips to help prevent crime:
Crimes of opportunity are as prevalent in White lake Township as in any of our neighboring communities. To help combat these types of crimes it is important to practice a few common sense strategies.
ALWAYS LOCK YOUR DOORS (EVEN WHEN YOU ARE HOME).
This includes the door leading to the house from the garage as well as all exterior doors and also windows.
ALWAYS KEEP THE OVERHEAD DOOR TO THE GARAGE CLOSED AND LOCKED.
An open garage with no vehicles inside is a clear sign that no one is home.
WHEN WORKING IN THE YARD, CARRY A KEY AND KEEP THE EXTERIOR DOORS TO THE HOME CLOSED AND LOCKED.
NEVER LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR VEHICLES
One of the most common crimes in the area is larceny from vehicles. Thieves will enter unlocked, as well as locked vehicles and remove personal items such as GPS Units, computers and cameras, wallets, cash and anything else of value. Keep your cars locked, valuables out of site and house lights on. White Lake police have been patrolling. Please call them if you see anything suspicious, (248) 698-4400.
ALWAYS BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS
If something in your neighborhood doesn't look right it may not be right. Call the police and let them know.
Below are additional Safety measures for our neighborhood:
Ride with traffic; use the rightmost lane headed in the direction you are going. Obey traffic signals and stop signs.
Just like motorists, pedestrians are expected to follow certain rules of the road, including:
- Pedestrians are to use sidewalks whenever they are safely available.
- When sidewalks are unavailable, pedestrians must walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible.
- Pedestrians must obey traffic signals and/or traffic officers.
- At crosswalks where there isn't a traffic control signal or officer, pedestrians have the right-of-way.
If there aren't any crosswalks, signs or signals, the pedestrian must yield the right-of-way to all vehicles. Regardless of the right-of-way, the driver is required by law to take great care to avoid "hitting" pedestrians.
White Lake Police House Watch Service:
Planning a trip? Do you intend to use the White Lake Police House Watch Service?
You should consider it. If you were not aware, our White Lake Police provide a service called Vacation House Watch. It is only available online, but it is so simple that it is a shame not to utilize it.

When you are on the House Watch list, police officers will routinely check your home while you are out of town, and notify you if they see anything amiss. We are very grateful to have this service available to our residents free of charge.
Our neighbors confirm that this generates an extra police presence in our absence. In addition to drive-by's, they walk around your home looking for possible intrusions. In fact, the entire neighborhood benefits from the extra police presence. After your return, they even send a letter confirming what they observed while you were gone.
