“Click It or Ticket” is a phrase many are familiar with and all should practice. Michigan law requires drivers, front-seat passengers, and passengers 15 and younger in any seating position to be buckled.

Michigan statistics from 2019 show, 217 people killed in traffic crashes were not wearing a seat belt.

To remind everyone about the importance of buckling up, the Metro Police Authority will be participating in the Office of Highway Safety Planning’s “Click It or Ticket” campaign in an effort to reduce traffic injuries and fatalities.

Buckle up, Michigan!!

Locally, there has been an increase in car larcenies and the Metro Police Authority wants to make sure you are taking the proper precautions so you are not a victim. Make sure your vehicle is locked if parked outside, day and night. Thieves work 24/7, so make sure your vehicle is always locked. Remove all valuables from within if possible. If a thief gets into your vehicle, they will find anything you’re hiding. Finally, turn your porch lights on at night. A majority of car larcenies occur during the overnight hours, so turn your lights on to deter thieves.

Please follow these simple suggestions and avoid the headache of having your vehicle broken into and your property stolen.

Please do not fall for these schemes. Check in with elderly parents to make sure they know about this current scheme.

Scammers are currently targeting our area, with the “grandson in jail” scam! In recent days we have received two complaints, from township residents. Unfortunately, one victim fell for the scam and lost money.
The caller claims to be a grandchild, who has been arrested. They say bond money is needed to get out of jail. The “attorney” gets on the phone and gives instructions to the victim. The unique twist to the recent calls is, the victim is told, someone will come to their home to pick up the money. That is what occurred in the one case.
If you receive such a call, please notify police immediately! Please speak with elderly family, friends and neighbors and warn them of the scam.

From all of us at the Metro Police Authority, Merry Christmas!!

Covid-19 and a global pandemic could not stop the Metro Police Authority, the Swartz Creek Fire Department, and Meijer from continuing the long standing tradition of “Shop with a Hero”. This year, 10 families from the community were selected to participate, with each child in the home filling out a “Wish List” of gifts for themselves and those in their family. Meijer provided the gifts on each child’s list and a meal for the entire family. The “Heroes” then delivered the gifts and meals to the kids and their families at their homes.

THANK YOU, Meijer, for your extreme generosity and giving these kids a Christmas they will never forget.

Michigan can be Winter Wonderland, bringing with it icy and snowy roads. As a friendly reminder, slow down and drive at a safe speed for the road conditions. Just because the speed limit says you can go a certain speed, doesn’t mean you should when the roads are bad. Slow down and drive safe!!

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a hard year and unlike any other, but that doesn’t give anyone an excuse to drink and drive.

Throughout the month of December, Officers at the Metro Police Authority will be participating in the Office of Highway Safety Planning OWI grant in an effort to keep drunk drivers off the road and our streets safe.

Be safe and make the right decision by driving sober or having a designated driver. Don’t ruin your life or the life of another.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Metro Police Authority!!!

At the beginning of September, The Metro Police Authority (MPA) teamed up with Camp Quality and their “Go Gold for the Kids” race, where a 100 Mile Challenge was created by members of the MPA. The challenge was initiated to bring awareness to Pediatric Cancer and to show support to all the kids who are fighting, or have fought, this terrible disease.

Throughout the month of September, Officers and staff of the MPA logged close to 600 miles with Sgt. Todd Johnson, Detective Ryan Ortiz, Officer Nicole Gillett, Evidence Tech Lynn Davis, and Father Geromel each recording 100 miles individually.

Security Credit Union (SCU) generously sponsored the 100 Mile Challenge and created a trophy to recognize the participants who completed the 100 miles. SCU went even further than sponsoring the race and provided a pizza lunch for the whole department in recognition of the departments participants. THANK YOU, SCU, for your sponsorship and helping us bring awareness to Pediatric Cancer.

MPA will be back at it again next September and hope to be challenging other departments in running “100 miles for the kids”.

Coronavirus: Scammers follow the headlines

https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2020/02/coronavirus-scammers-follow-headlines

Please share.

We hope you are having a wonderful day. Metro Police Authority of Genesee County wants to pass on a word about scammers. We are still getting complaints from people giving large sums of money to these scammers and usually it is older people. If you have a parent vulnerable to these kind of transactions then maybe this needs to be a conversation.

Scammers are out to take advantage of any fear out there so now come the coronavirus schemes. We know that the people who fear the virus the most are the most vulnerable to being scammed.

There is information about the virus on the CDC direct website. They post updates and information. If something new comes out then it will be on local or national news. Don’t believe everything on Facebook.....

Calls stating they will take your social security because you did something, you’ve won the lottery, IRS has a problem you need to pay immediately, your grandchild needs bond money, or anybody that says they need gift cards to pay for something should be immediately be seen as apparent scams.

If it is too good to be true.....If it is threats of something.....and all out of the blue.

Phone scammers are very convincing though. We had one case of a long running scheme where the schemer would pretend they were two different people and used a falsetto voice for the woman’s part. Needless to say, the officer recognized what was happening. Most of these scammers are from out of the country and difficult or impossible to prosecute.

The best protection reference the telephone scammer is to not answer any telephone number you don’t recognize and let it go to voicemail. Scammers can make a phone number show to have our local area codes with the computer. They started doing this because everybody stopped answering the 800 numbers.

Some elderly or vulnerable people’s’ phones ring ALL DAY from these scammers which is sad because the phone is some people’s’ life line. It is hard to get them to let the calls go to voicemail.

Now texts scams are starting so don’t respond to texts that are unsolicited. One we saw came through about a FedX delivery notice and when clicked on took you to a fake Amazon page.

Computer scammers.

NEVER ALLOW ANYBODY to sign in remotely into your computer unless you personally called requesting assistance from a reputable company.

The best protection on the computer is to NOT CLICK on any link in an email but go to the site by going to it directly yourself. If there is a deal then it will be on the site too.

Make sure it is the company’s real site. Look at the address in the address bar. Most companies have their name and a . Com. Fraudulent scammers will have an address with the company name in it but other numbers or words. Anybody can buy a website name for a few bucks so the scammer buys similar site names.

Scammers have email schemes that send emails that look EXACTLY like the real sites’ emails and then send you to pages that mimic the real company’s page.

Scammers will also send emails that look like reputable companies’ bill reminder emails. Go to the real page and don’t click on those emails.

Scammers will send a bank’s emails for low balance notices. Don’t click on them, go to your banks actual site to check it out.

If you click on one of these fake sites, they might put a virus on the computer. It is an unnecessary expense to get the virus removed off a computer when it stops working.

People believe that the phone company or email providers would block criminals. They don’t. If an email goes to your junk email - leave it there unless expecting to receive something specific. If a bill and you are not sure, go to the site directly and not through the email. These emails are usually scammers that are being stopped by your email providers.

Legislation is coming though to make cellular and phone providers block these scammers calling but it isn’t here quite yet.

Scammers are taking advantage of fears surrounding the Coronavirus.

It seems there is a new, creative phone scam everyday trying to trick you into sending someone your information or money.

As a friendly reminder, NEVER give your information to anyone who calls you over the phone asking for it. Also, if anyone asks you to go buy gift cards and send them the card information, it is a SCAM!!!

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from a reputable business and it doesn’t feel right, hang up and contact the business yourself to verify it is legitimate.

Please be careful and use caution as scammers are becoming more and more creative in scamming their targets.

We live on Seymour rd & Oakview Swartz Creek our house was Vandalize either late sat or early sun. out SANTA was cut . nice to know someone is going around destroying christmas decorations.
Thank you vibes are going out to this officer who came out and unlock my SUV.
My keys got locked in my SUV. Thanks to the Officer for unlocking MY SUV.
I haven't seen any recent post on here. They fail me now I stay in my apartment to avoid being hurt at night. I don't go outside very much during the day.
Very disappointed the way they handled my complaint. More than have of my statement is missing and as I was told by different officer they know where these people are and live at.. All I got was excuses. I lived in Davison before here and they would have taken it seriously.
Went to Meto Police Authority to make a complaint about a threat on my life yesterday and they did nothing. This is legit. People in the office thought it was funny but I see know humor in this at all, they already know the man is violent. My family is very upset needless to say.
Happy Father’s Day to the men in blue! We have a parade style open house at 6 pm in Swartz Creek from the Gil Roy’s down seymour to the baptist church, we would love it if a couple cruisers could lead the parade if you’re not too busy?!
Wondering if something is going on South Jennings Road. We had a police car sitting in the road between my neighbor and I with his headlights on , flashlights?? It makes one feel a tad uneasy?
FOUND DOG **** HILL RD MEIJER
I would like to submit a formal complaint about an officer who showed me no respect and seemed annoyed that I even wanted to give a statement about an accident I witnessed. I don't have the name, but I have the vehicle number and the exact date and time. How do I go about submitting a complaint?
