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.
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.

If you have questions about your safety or security, please do not hesitate to call the police department at 810-653-5656.
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.
