The following is a message from one of our Citizen's Radio Patrol Volunteers. While on patrol this weekend, he observed a suspicious vehicle and notified 911. The Genesee County Park Rangers responded and they were able to make an arrest. The volunteers did a great job of practicing safe tactics by not approaching the suspicious vehicle and assisting law enforcement with excellent observations and notes. Thank you to all the volunteers that came out this weekend and the Genesee County Park Rangers for your continuous assistance.

"At approximately 2100hrs, I closed the Dort station, and proceeded to patrol the Applegate/McKinley Park area while maintaining radio contact with Patrolers in unit #1. At approximately 2215hrs, at the cul-de-sac on Orville, four blocks north of Peer, I observed a blue van parked near the service gate.

At this time I notified unit #1, and requested back up. Unit #1 and I met in the Vista Center parking lot. I made a second pass through the cul-de-sac and observed that the suspect vehicle had moved into the woods in what I perceived as as attempt to conceal their location.

I returned to the Vista parking lot with unit #1, then contacted 911 dispatch and informed dispatch of the situation.

Approximately 30 minutes later, two Park Rangers met me in the Vista parking lot, where I apprised them of the situation.

The Rangers proceeded to initiate contact with the occupants (1 male, 1 female) and conduct a search of the vehicle which resulted in the discovery of marijuana and alcohol. The male subject was determined to have an outstanding warrant.

The Rangers requested that I pass on their appreciation to the team for their assistance in making this arrest. Our report to them gave them an increased situational awareness in a dangerous situation. On a personal note, they found it refreshing that some civilians 'Had their 6.' "

Just one example of how the citizens of Flint truly care about one another #FlintCares

On 01-07-15 at 9:30 P.M., officers received a call to the area of Howard and Floral Park, to check the welfare of an elderly female. A lady was located under a blanket with little clothing on her person. The temperature was 2 degrees, with a wind chill well below zero. A City of Flint resident, Arletha Chaney and her children arrived at the above location. Miss Chaney asked if they could be of any assistance. Officers on the scene transported the lady to a motel that was located near by. Miss Chaney and her children collected the lady's belongs and transported them to the motel. Miss Chaney even offered to pay for a motel room for the lady. Miss Chaney gave the lady some money for a warm meal. Without Miss Chaney's assistance, It wouldn't have been possible to transport all of the lady's belongings. The Flint Police Department would like to thank Miss Chaney and her children for their generosity and being there in a time of need. #FlintCares
