Free Gun Safety Locks

Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard would like to encourage individuals who have unsecured weapons in their homes to pick up a free gun safety lock at their local Sheriff’s Office Substation. The Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Oakland County Board of Commissioners, the Oakland County Health Division, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), held the annual Gun Safety Awareness press conference today announcing the annual gun safety lock giveaway, a program which promotes safe gun ownership by distributing free gun locks to the public through local police departments and Sheriff’s Office Substations.

In addition to trigger locks being available to residents free of charge at the Sheriff’s Office’s twelve Substations, Sheriff Bouchard announced today residents of the Substation patrolled areas may request gun locks by calling their Substation and requesting one to be delivered to their home. This service is ONLY available in the patrol areas where the Sheriff’s Office patrols, and only if a patrol car is not on a call. The free trigger locks are available throughout the month of June while supplies last.

Commerce Township’s Position Regarding Changes in the Medical Marihuana Laws

Commerce Township is aware of the three Public Acts signed into law in September 2016 which address medical marihuana, particularly the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. The Licensing Act permits the State to issue licenses for businesses associated with medical marihuana, but such licenses cannot be issued until December 2017 and only if the Township specifically passes an ordinance permitting such licenses. The Township currently does not have such an ordinance. 

The Commerce Township Board of Trustees, in consultation with the Township attorneys, will be deciding what, if any, actions it will take in response to the new laws. In the meantime, the Township will continue to follow federal, state and local laws pertaining to marihuana.
