A contact of mine at the Ferndale Police Department asked me to remind the residents of Ferndale that the people of Ferndale are the eyes and the ears of the Police Department when officers are not around. There have been a number of arrests made lately that have been the result of concerned citizens calling the Ferndale Police Department when a crime is taking place.
One such instance recently happened after neighbors called the Ferndale Police Department after confronting a suspicious man who was nosing around a house. When he was arrested, police found a stolen passport, a plastic handgun that was modified to look real, and are currently working on connecting him with a local robbery. All of this happened due to the concern of Ferndale residents.
