Contracted police services has proven to be a very effective and efficient means to provide the best possible police services by sharing services and resources, while still maintaining dedicated local police in our community. This policing model of pooling resources and tailoring police services to the specific needs of a community is successfully used throughout our country.

We provide 24/7 police protection with a staff of thirty full-time MCOLES certified Deputies working from the Orion Township Substation located at the Orion Township Hall, 2323 Joslyn Road. You can access all our services and community programs 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Deputies are dispatched 24/7 for all other public safety matters. For after business hour service at the Station, a direct-line call-box to our 911 Center is located at the main entrance to the police station.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center services all public safety response calls for Orion Township and is one of the most advanced public safety inter-operable 911 centers in the nation.  The dispatch center houses the Michigan Safety Communication System (MPSCS) for the best possible regional response for SE Michigan. Dispatchers are trained, nationally accredited and tested for Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD), Emergency Fire Dispatch (EFD) and Emergency Police Dispatch (EPD).

In addition to our dedicated Orion Township Deputies, we are fully supported with all of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Special Units.
