PONTIAC, MI – Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard, in anticipation of the Woodward Dream Cruise this Saturday, wants to remind the public about the importance to report any suspicious circumstance to authorities immediately.
“Our nation is on edge due to the recent events across the country,” said Sheriff Bouchard. “Locally, a concert was cancelled due to threats to the venue and coupled with the mass shootings, and suspected shootings which have caused panic, we need the public to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings. If you see something, say something – this includes social media. We have witnessed many of these events being alluded to on social media prior to them playing out, and we are asking the public to speak up about anything concerning.”
The Sheriff’s Office and the local law enforcement agencies along Woodward Avenue have security plans in place and have taken many precautions in planning for this year’s Dream Cruise.
As a reminder, a traffic control will be in place between 9am and 9pm on Saturday, which will prohibit all commercial vehicles, all vehicles with trailers, and any vehicle over 10,000 pounds from using the Dream Cruise route.
The public is asked to call 911 immediately should they need to report any threat, suspicious circumstance, or emergency.
