    What is a Personal Protection Order (PPO) and how do I obtain one?

    A personal protection order (PPO) is an order issued by the Court.  It can protect you from harassment, assault, beating, molesting, wounding, or stalking by another person.  The order can also prohibit him/her from entering your premises and from removing minor children unless the removal is part of court-ordered visitation.

     

    There are two types of PPO's:

    1. Issued only after the other person has been notified that you have filed for a restraining order and after a court hearing has been held.
    2. Issued without notifying the other person and with no court hearing.  This is called an ex parte order.
    3.  

     To file a PPO:

    • An attorney is not necessary in this process.
    • County Clerk’s office can provide a “do-it-yourself” personal protection order packet.
    • The packet will contain necessary forms and instruction to request a hearing.
    • In case of immediate danger, ask the clerk for an ex parte order form to complete.
    • A PPO goes into effect as soon as the Judge signs it.
    • The Clerk’s office will provide a copy to the Genesee County Sheriff Department so that it can immediately be entered into the Law Enforcement Information Network.

     

    You may receive a personal protection order if you are a victim of domestic violence or stalking.  PPO applications are available from the Genesee County Clerk’s office in the county Courthouse at 900 South Saginaw Street, Flint, MI 48503.  The phone number is 810-257-3610.

  • Tips

    ANONYMOUS TIP INFORMATION

    Witnessed a crime? We know it brings hesitation, especially deciding whether to come forward or let information go unreported due to fear or involvement. We also know that if crime goes undetected, it's as if it never happened.

     

    An undocumented crime leaves the criminal to continue to commit crimes. This leaves our community vulnerable and unsafe for both adults and children.

     

    The Davison Township Police Department has a special telephone number you can call to leave an anonymous tip.  It can be about drug activity in the area, information on someone who may have committed a crime, or maybe someone you know has a warrant for their arrest.  Please call 810-653-5656 Ext. 7847.

     

    SAFETY TIP

     In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1. The Davison Township Police Departments would like to keep all residents and visitors to the area safe.  Always remember, you should not give your personal information, Social Security number, financial account numbers, birth dates or maiden name over the phone to someone you do not know.  If you have questions about your safety or security, please do not hesitate to call the police department at 810-653-5656.

     

  • Scams

    POSSIBLE SCAM REGARDING DOG LICENSES 1/16  (PDF)

     

    IRS “Scam”

    The Davison Township Police Department would like to warn residents about a telephone scam.  Currently there is a group calling saying they are from the IRS and you own them money.

    The caller tells the potential victim there is a pending law suit against them and they must make a payment to the IRS.  Do not give the caller any information over the phone regardless of any threats they make to take legal action.  Just tell them you will not provide them any information and hang up. Do not ever send money via Western Union or Greendot.

     

    Credit Card “Scam”

    Following is an example of a telephonic credit card scam.

    Person calling says - 'This is (name), and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My Badge number is 12460, your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by (name of bank). Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a marketing company based in Arizona ?' When you say 'No', the caller continues with, 'Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?' You say 'yes'.

    The caller then says, 'I need to verify you are in possession of your card'. He'll ask you to 'turn your card over and look for some numbers'. There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are part of your card number, the last 3 are the Security Numbers that verify you are the possessor of the card. These are the numbers you sometimes use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. The caller will ask you to read the last 3 numbers to him. After you tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say, 'That is correct, I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions?'

    For your security:

    • Do not give out any credit card information over the phone!
    •  
    • Legitimate credit card company representatives would not ask for the security code numbers on the back of the card …. They all-ready have them.
    •  
    • If there is a breach in the security of your card and the credit card company contacts you, they would only inquire as to the location and amount of a purchase.
