Please help us welcome the new City of Flint Police Chief Terence Green, who started today. He said his top priorities are hiring more police officers to fill vacancies in the department, supporting the officers under his command, and increasing community trust.
"I didn't walk in here blind," Chief Green said. "I know what needs to be done." Of course he does. Chief Green was born in Flint and still lives in Flint. He's a decorated veteran officer whose previous experience includes serving as commander of the Genesee County drug enforcement team. Most recently, he served as Mt. Morris Township’s police chief.
Flint born. Flint proud.
The City of Flint has taken 384 guns off the streets permanently, fulfilling Mayor Sheldon A. Neeley's pledge to stop auctioning off illegal weapons.
“No longer will the City of Flint be an arms dealer,” Mayor Neeley said. “Selling off illegal guns to the highest bidder is simply wrong. It’s unconscionable to think that the City of Flint, where we have been harmed by so much gun violence, would participate in any activity that puts guns back on the street.”
Last year, the city put 1,200 confiscated guns back in circulation through auctions.

Congratulations to Deputy Fire Chief Carrie Edwards-Clemons, who was elected president of the International Association of Black Professional Firefighters.

Details of the agreement are still coming together, so residents should be especially wary of those who may try to monetize the situation. The best place for accurate information on the $600 million settlement announced Thursday by the state of Michigan is: flintsettlementfacts.org

Neeley said. “To ensure these dollars are given to Flint families and children as intended, we need to be aware that some may try to exploit our families for their own financial benefit.”

Welcome Terence Green, the next City of Flint police chief.
Mayor Sheldon Neeley announced Green's appointment today. Green is a graduate of Flint Northern who served 22 years with the Genesee County Sheriff's Department as a corrections officer, deputy, sergeant and captain.

Morris Township.
“I love the City of Flint. This is a dream come true to become the chief of police in the city where I was born and raised and that I love so much,” said Chief Green, who remains a City of Flint resident. “This will be the pinnacle of my career.”
Welcome home, chief.

Mayor Sheldon Neeley and EPA Regional Administrator Kurt Thiede see where a lead water line has been replaced with new copper pipes as part of Flint's service line replacement project. Although it fell behind schedule before Mayor Neeley took office in November, the project is now 90 percent complete.
Mayor Neeley and Mr. Thiede also toured the water treatment plant, got an overview on the ongoing corrosion control study, and received updates on other important projects launched under Mayor Neeley and now finally under construction after years of delay — including work on the chemical feed building, construction of a secondary water source, and increasing capacity of the water reservoir.
Mr. Thiede was appointed to his position in January 2020. He oversees all EPA operations in the Great Lakes region and made a visit to Flint on Tuesday.
