In light of ongoing developments and precautions in place around the country related to the COVID-19 pandemic, TKPD wants to re-assure the community of our continued commitment to high-quality police services.  Our goal has been to maintain effective and efficient service to the citizens of the Township of Kalamazoo and the City of Parchment while reducing personnel exposure.  We recognize that we are all in this together and we have a shared responsibility of  minimizing risk not only for officers but also to prevent unnecessary exposure to the public as a result of our duties.
We are actively collaborating with our local, state and federal partners in acquiring information and preparation of supplies. We are making adjustments to our personnel procedures and recognize our need to be in constant communication with public health experts as we find creative solutions to rapidly changing circumstances.  We ask that the public do their best to follow advice provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to help keep our officers, and each other, healthy and safe.  Local information related to COVID-19 can be found at the Kalamazoo County Health Dept website.
TKPD officers and non-sworn personnel are a group of dedicated professionals who have been intrinsically drawn to public service.  Our community can expect us to remain steadfast as we face adversity together. While unsure of how long the road ahead of us remains, we reaffirm our enduring commitment to serve our community.   




School Bus Safety

Tips for Drivers

  • Look before you back out

Watch out for children walking or bicycling to school when backing out of a driveway or leaving a garage. Walk around your car or out to the sidewalk to check for any children about to cross your path before you get in the car.


  • Be on the look out when driving through neighborhoods

Drive slowly and watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks. Be aware of children playing or standing at bus stops.


  • Be alert and aware on the road 

Children are usually taught to look both ways before crossing a street, but they could dart into traffic without looking if they're late or distracted.


  • Learn the school bus laws


Red flashing lights and an extended stop-arm signal indicate that the bus has stopped and that children are getting on or off. Cars must stop a safe distance away and not start up until the red lights stop flashing, the stop sign has been folded back, and the bus continues on its way.





Freedom of Information

Copies of all TKPD reports are available to the public via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request form.   

Silent Observer

It is the vision of Silent Observer  to empower the community to have safer neighborhoods, schools, and work environments by providing a voice that citizens can use to stand against criminals without fear of retaliation. 

Personal Protection Orders

A Personal Protection Order (PPO) is an order from the court that restrains a named individual from certain actions.  Otherwise commonly known as a "restraining order", a PPO is effective when signed by a judge and served.  Michigan PPOs are enforceable by any law enforcement agency in the country. 

Medication Dropoff

Unused medication can be dropped of at TKPD to be disposed of properly.  CLICK HERE for a complete list of accepted medications.
