The Olivet Police Department is located at 117 S. Main St. in the back part of City Hall, and is where officers can be reached when not on the road.
The department consists of two sworn officers including the Chief of Police. Each sworn officer is MCOLES (Michigan Coalition On Law Enforcement Standards) certified as required by the State of Michigan, and they attend classroom and field training throughout each year to maintain their certification. In addition to the certified officers, the Olivet Police Department currently has one active Reserve Officer on the force.
Often times citizens will advise an officer of an issue, after the fact, then say that they didn't think it was an emergency and they didn't want to bother the police. Though the thought is appreciated, our job is to Protect and Serve, and the best way to do that is to respond when an incident or situation is occurring. So if it's not an immediate threat to life or property, we encourage you to call one of the Non-Emergency numbers, and report the situation or incident. You can remain anonymous.

Success In Fighting Hunger!
Fill-A-Cop Car - On December 5th of this year, from 10am to 2pm, the Olivet Police Department teamed up with other Eaton County Law Enforcement Agencies to help fight hunger, by filling our patrol car with donated food from the community.
We partnered up with the Bellevue Police Department, and parked our cars in the parking lot of the Town and Country Supermarket, who most willingly participated in this fight against hunger. Chief Griffin and Chief Garcia, as well as Chief Garcia's little helper Raigan, requested help from shoppers in filling the cop cars, and the generousity was overwhelming. Both patrol cars' back seats were filled with all kinds of food, and money was also collected, which will be used to purchase even more food. In addition to the shoppers at the store, others stopped by, and dontated food they brought from home.
A big thanks to the Eaton County Sheriff's Department for organizing this event, and an even bigger thanks to those who donated so generously.
The City of Olivet has passed a Resolution, which allows residents of the city to operate golf carts on city streets. This does not include side-by-side vehicles such as the Polaris Ranger, Kawasaki Mule, John Deere Gators, etc. Those types of ATV's can still, and must be titled and registered through the State of Michigan.
The "Owner" of the golf cart must be a resident of or business in Olivet, and the owner or authorized representative of a business must register the same. The golf carts do not have to be modified with additional equipment or insured, however, there are still rules, including traffic violations as set-forth in the Michigan Motor Vehicle Code, that will still be enforced by the Olivet PD and/or other agencies.
If you wish to register a golf cart or have any questions, you may contact the Olivet City Hall or Olivet PD between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm.
