Letter from the Chief;

Citizens of Spring Arbor Township;

I am retiring from the Spring Arbor Township Police Department effective December 16, 2022. It has been my over whelming pleasure to have worked for the township police department and our citizens for the last 19+ years, 3 of that as your Chief of Police. I appreciate the support, courtesy, friendliness and “help” of this community, in which I have lived and raised a family in for the past 30 years. I have worked in law enforcement for 3 other communities over my 45 year career and none of them compare to the wonderful township we have. I can honestly say I will miss working with the residents of Spring Arbor Township who have been instrumental in helping me keep our community a safe, friendly and secure environment to raise our families in.

I encourage you to stop in at the monthly township board meeting and meet my successor Chief Dan Deering, who recently retired from the Jackson County Office of the Sheriff. I have known Chief Deering for 25 years and he is also a resident of Spring Arbor Township. He brings the highest degree of enthusiasm, ownership, dedication, knowledge and professionalism to your Spring Arbor Township Police Department.

Thank You All !

Chief Howard Noppe
