PENTWATER — With the arrival of summer, the Village of Pentwater grows to a population of 4,500 people. A fully equipped police department is needed. Opening June 6, Pentwater combined its local government offices into one location.

“Pentwater is a two to three-generational town,” said Police Chief Laude Hartrum. “People are very proud of their village government.” Unlike the old location, the new department is spacious and more equipped. “We have the essentials. Cam recorders to digitally record our interview rooms. Cameras connected to our computers to see the outside. Body cams, and even a garage.” 

This is the first time Pentwater Police Dept. has had a garage attached to its building. Housing two squad cars, two bikes, one motorcycle, and even a golf cart. “A lot of efficiency and planning went into this building,” said Chris Brown Village Manager.

Local officials are very pleased to see the grand opening lead by Chief Hartum. “We couldn’t have a better chief,” said Barbara Siok, Deputy Clerk/Treasurer.
