Call 988 for mental health emergencies, instead of 911.

This new three-digit phone number works across the United States thanks to Congress's action in 2020, and is the new phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Calling 988 will get you help quicker than calling 911, and prevent police officers from being called to situations they are not trained to handle. The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline employs trained professionals to assist you in your time of need.

Hello Residents of Eastpointe,

I took no pleasure in offering a motion to censure the Mayor at our City Council meeting yesterday. She called the Public Safety Director asking for a police presence, simply for feeling disrespected. And also, she threatened to remove a board member, and asked the City Manager to remove a board member (neither of which are the appropriate way to handle the situation). These abuses of power cannot be tolerated. All citizens in Eastpointe should have equal access to the police, and the Mayor and City Council should not be abusing their access to the police (the police department reports to the City Manager who reports to City Council). City Council members should be calling 911 or the non-emergency line if police resources are needed (I have done both). They should not be calling the Public Safety Director instead. Board members in the community, who volunteer their time, should not be subject to threats from the Mayor (or other City Council members).

A while ago the City Council adopted an Training and Conference Policy for Elected Officials. Because our agenda management system is hard to navigate when items span multiple meetings, I am creating this article as a one-stop-shop for the Training and Conference Policy for Elected Officials.
