  • The Shepherd Police Department assisted with ALICE Training with the staff of the Shepherd High School, Middle School, and Odyssey. ALICE stands for “Alert Lockdown Inform Counter Evacuate.” In an earlier post, it was stated that “ALICE is a response system to an active violence incident at the school. More details about ALICE will be communicated in the near future. This is 100% a great thing and has proven to save lives. Topics like this are necessary and we must be prepared, though we hope and pray that we never have to use it.”
  • On Monday, the SPD was looking for a 2010 Chevy Malibu with a paper license plate DUQ9359 in the back window. “We would like to speak to the driver as this vehicle is stolen,” their post said. “If you see this vehicle please call Central Dispatch (989-773-1000).” So far, there hasn’t been an update as to whether the car has been located.
  • As of Monday, August 20, SPD was still accepting donations for Foster Closet. “We are looking for teen socks, deodorant and body wash/spray,” the post read. “Our SPD FB family has always blown them away with our donations and we know this time will be no different.”
  • The Old 27 Car Tour passed through the Village of Shepherd today at around 5:40 p.m. From an earlier post: “The vehicles will come down Federal to Sunset to Wright to Shepherd Rd. The tour should be arriving at approximately 5:40PM and last 30 minutes. We will have the roads closed during this time, so plan accordingly. Come on out and enjoy all of the vehicles as the drivers love to see all of people of Shepherd.”

Speed Traps

Deborah Bailey

I was told that if a police officer is parked (in a parking lot etc…) without some sort of lights on that it’s consider entrapment, and they’re not allowed to do that. I say “if you’re not following the law then it doesn’t matter.

Shepherd Police Department

Guess I’ll need more details…kinda of confused. Are you speaking about a police officer sitting in a parking lot running radar on cars on the road?

Deborah Bailey

Yes, sorry I wasn’t clear on that. Lol

Shepherd Police Department

A police officer can 100% do that.

Deborah Bailey

Thank you. It feels good though be right. Lol

Tailgating

Laurie Kamrowski

What are you supposed to do when you are being tailgated even when you are doing the speed limit?

Shepherd Police Department

Keep driving the speed limit and if you feel the need pull over. Do not “brake check” the car…because they’ll probably slam into you. Will they we at fault…most likely…did your vehicle just get ruined and you run the chance of getting injured…definitely.
