Members of the South Lyon Police Department provide community oriented policing service to more than 11,000 city residents, as well as to those who visit or pass through our community. The department is currently staffed with 17 full time officers, 2 full time clerks and 1 service aide. The department also employs school crossing guards.
When you dial 911 or the non-emergency number, your call is automatically routed to a central dispatch facility. Dispatch and prisoner lock-up services are provided through a contractual agreement. This saves South Lyon officers the hours of travel time that would be required for a trip to the Oakland County Jail in Pontiac, 22 miles away.
Lloyd T. Collins is the Chief of Police and serves as the department's administrator. Chief Collins brings over 39 years of experience in law enforcement. He is particularly proud of his officers' record of quick response to urgent situations. In many cases, city officers are on the scene of emergencies within minutes, and that type of response is tough to beat.
