School Programs

The Lapeer Police Department works closely with our schools to educate our children on drug awareness.  If you are interested in arranging a visit to discuss one of the following programs, please call 810.664.0833.

TEAM - Teaching, Educating, and Mentoring

This program takes place in our 5th grade elementary schools. The program lasts for eight (8) weeks and is taught by Officer Steven Hinsberger and Officer Larry Taylor.  It teaches the students how to resist temptations of using drugs and peer pressure from other students.

We also have a School Resource Officer (SRO), Officer Brian Wenzel, who works with Lapeer Commuinity Schools by taking complaints from students and staff and acting as a liaison between the students and the police department.
