From the Ferndale Police Department:

We were excited to share this new look for one of our vehicles in honor of Autism Acceptance Month. While we've gotten some awesome feedback, we've also heard from a number of you that the puzzle image is problematic.

We met with our friends and partners on the Ferndale Accessibility and Inclusion Advisory Commission and had a great conversation. We shared that this wasn't just a random social awareness campaign--that it was deeply personal to us, and particularly to Officer Shank, whose child is autistic. For her and others like her, the puzzle is seen as a colorful symbol and celebration of uniqueness and individuality. That said, we in turn learned that other autistic community members affiliate the puzzle with an organization many view as problematic, and a symbol of "not being whole" or requiring extra help to fit in--which of course we never intended. We also learned about great organizations like the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN), which provides a self-inclusive approach to autism acceptance and advocacy with the mission: "Nothing About Us Without Us."

Our biggest takeaway in all of this: when we come together as a community to talk to and learn from each other, everyone wins. Thank you to everyone who joined the conversation--it will shape how we engage going forward, and it helps us to be true partners in community policing.

Today, members of our Police, Fire, City Council, and Ferndale Accessibility and Inclusion Advisory Commission received autism safety training presented by Autism Alliance of Michigan to expand first responderโ€™s knowledge of autism and increase our recognition skills of persons with autism.

When is the city going to take action on the blight that Ferndale food shoppers causing throughout our neighborhoods? Personally I have reported trash and such 22 times in less than a year with no response for anyone at the city. This is getting ridiculous and needs to be addressed ASAP.
Is it possible for DPW to provide a week's notice to residents that they will be street sweeping? This will give those that park on the street an opportunity to move their vehicles and make sweeping effective AND efficient. Much thanks!
City of Oak Park actively taking care of its people, while Ferndale worries about more bike lanes.
Good morning, I am new to the area and recently earned myself a $100 ticket for parking during a snow emergency. I live in a house that has been turned into apartments and the only place to park is on the street. There is no driveway and no alternative parking. I now know about the parking available downtown. However, how are apartment dwellers supposed to get back from these parking lots during a snow emergency? WIll the Ferndale PD be giving rides back home? Are there shuttles? Or, should I walk the 8 blocks back home in freezing weather? I want to follow the law to avoid another ticket, but this all just seems to discriminate against non-homeowners. I called the department and it was all very much "figure it out," which just can't be. I would like to avoid this ticket in the future as 100 dollars is an enormous amount during a pandemic. Please assist.
Are the snow plows still out? (College St. East of Paxton)

Hi, this pile of leaves has been in front of my neighbors house since Sunday November 8. My address is 748 Wordsworth. We were scheduled last week. Please have DPW come and do what they should have done last week as our week, East of Woodward, was last week. The pile was put there before the our specified week began. I wrote a private message and a see click fix with no response. Thank you!
