A personal protection order (PPO) is an order issued by the Court. It can protect you from harassment, assault, beating, molesting, wounding, or stalking by another person. The order can also prohibit him/her from entering your premises and from removing minor children unless the removal is part of court-ordered visitation.

There are two types of PPO's:

  1. Issued only after the other person has been notified that you have filed for a restraining order and after a court hearing has been held.
  2. Issued without notifying the other person and with no court hearing. This is called an ex parte order.

To file a PPO:

  • An attorney is not necessary in this process.
  • County Clerk’s office can provide a “do-it-yourself” personal protection order packet.
  • The packet will contain necessary forms and instruction to request a hearing.
  • In case of immediate danger, ask the clerk for an ex parte order form to complete.
  • A PPO goes into effect as soon as the Judge signs it.
  • The Clerk’s office will provide a copy to the Genesee County Sheriff Department so that it can immediately be entered into the Law Enforcement Information Network.

You may receive a personal protection order if you are a victim of domestic violence or stalking. PPO applications are available from the Genesee County Clerk’s office in the county Courthouse at 900 South Saginaw Street, Flint, MI 48503. The phone number is 810-257-3610.

Tips

ANONYMOUS TIP INFORMATION
Witnessed a crime? We know it brings hesitation, especially deciding whether to come forward or let information go unreported due to fear or involvement. We also know that if crime goes undetected, it’s as if it never happened.

An undocumented crime leaves the criminal to continue to commit crimes. This leaves our community vulnerable and unsafe for both adults and children.

The Davison Township Police Department has a special telephone number you can call to leave an anonymous tip. It can be about drug activity in the area, information on someone who may have committed a crime, or maybe someone you know has a warrant for their arrest. Please call 810-653-5656 Ext. 7847.

SAFETY TIP
In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1. The Davison Township Police Departments would like to keep all residents and visitors to the area safe. Always remember, you should not give your personal information, Social Security number, financial account numbers, birth dates or maiden name over the phone to someone you do not know. If you have questions about your safety or security, please do not hesitate to call the police department at 810-653-5656.

Scams

IRS “Scam”
The Davison Township Police Department would like to warn residents about a telephone scam. Currently there is a group calling saying they are from the IRS and you own them money.

The caller tells the potential victim there is a pending law suit against them and they must make a payment to the IRS. Do not give the caller any information over the phone regardless of any threats they make to take legal action. Just tell them you will not provide them any information and hang up. Do not ever send money via Western Union or Greendot.
