Community Policing

The Westland Police Department established its Community Police program in the fall of 1996. Since then, the program has shown an effective partnership between the Community Police Officers and the residents who live and work within the community. This partnership has shown a major impact on reducing neighborhood crime, helping reduce the fear of crime, and enhancing the quality of life in the community.


Officers DeAndre Plear and Jennifer Schurig are currently assigned as the Community Police and the Neighborhood Resource Officers for the City of Westland Police Department. These Officers handle a wide variety of assignments which include:

  • Bike and Foot Patrol
  • Crime Suppression
  • Neighborhood Relations
  • Tobacco and Alcohol Inspections
  • Youth Enforcement
