Due to the current drop in temperature over this weekend, the City of Westland is closing it's cooling centers but will continue to monitor temperatures and reopen the cooling centers as needed.
Westland City Hall, City Parks and the Jefferson Barns Community Vitality Center are open for our residents. Online services and the City drop boxes are still available for residents to use. The two drop boxes located at City Hall for bill payments (no cash please) and document drop offs that will be checked daily. The Senior Friendship Center will continue to be closed until further notice. Thank you for your patience in this unprecedented challenging time and please stay healthy.
The Tactical Response Unit (TRU) was created in 1993 to provide resources and tactical support where the need is greater than the capabilities offered by the Patrol Division, the Investigative Bureau, and the Special Investigations Unit (SIU). Members of the TRU have receive the following training: basic SWAT, advanced SWAT, hostage rescue, tactical pistol and carbine, less lethal munitions and chemical munitions. Select members have received additional training as marksman/observers.
By maintaining our own tactical response unit, the City of Westland ensures that any circumstance requiring an advanced response receives immediate attention.
