Abandoned Vehicles

Abandon Vehicles Guidelines

If you are a business owner or an owner of private property, view our Abandoned Vehicles Guidelines (PDF) for the ordinance and process to have the vehicle removed from your property.

The Police Department does not have the authority to remove any abandoned vehicles from Businesses/Private property unless it falls under criminal statutes in the State of Michigan.
