Mission Statementpolice photo

The Linden Police Department is committed to excellence in providing effective high quality service to the community in a professional and courteous manner.  We are committed to work in partnership with the community to enhance the quality of life in our City.  We protect everyone's rights and property, and treat each person with the respect and dignity they deserve.

The Linden Police Department is dedicated to working with neighborhood residents, schools, and businesses to identify community problems and concerns, and to work together to find the best solution.

Finger Printing

The Department provides court ordered fingerprints only. Applicant fingerprinting is now provided by State of Michigan approved vendors. Applicants requiring fingerprinting may call 1-866-226-2952 for an appointment or access the IIS web site.

Code Red

The City of Linden is participating with the Genesee County 9-1-1 Consortium to provide the "Code Red" notification system.  Code Red has a database of land line phone numbers.  This system will be used to call and provide a recorded message in the event of an emergency in your neighborhood.  Residents of Flushing can also register e-mail accounts and cell phone numbers to receive emergency notifications through their e-mail accounts and text or recorded messages through their cell phones.  General notifications, such as road closures due to water main breaks, parades, or other community issues that may impact your living experience in Flushing can be provided in a message.  By registering, residents will also receive notifications regarding dangerous weather alerts directly from the National Weather Service.  Register online today.

Police Reports

Police reports can be obtained at the police department during normal business hours by persons who are a party involved in the incident.  The cost for a police report is $10.00.  Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, some information may be removed or redacted, prior to the report being released.   Persons not involved in the incident must file a request for reports through the City Clerk pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.

The Linden Police Department is committed to providing a safe community for you and your children. I take great pride in our officers and the service we provide to the community each day.

We welcome your comments.
