With the financial assistance of local schools, the Hartland Township Board of Trustees recently approved a contract for dedicated police coverage.
In a partnership between Hartland Township, Hartland Consolidated Schools and the Charyl Stockwell Academy, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office will provide a designated sheriff deputy to the Hartland area 12 hours per day throughout the year.
With the Police Protection contract in place, Harland officials say they will receive community coverage throughout the township area. Duties of officers will include patrolling of streets and parks, visibility in local parking lots, traffic enforcement and accident coverage, and daily school visits and checks. Officers will also be the designated contact person when issues come up which may require law enforcement assistance.
Officials say Hartland residents will not pay increased taxes for the increased police coverage as the township’s end of the funding will be provided from existing operating budgets.
