Lincoln Park Legal Resources:

25th District Court – In 1969, Michigan law consolidated almost all of the state’s Municipal Courts into a coordinated system of judicial districts, where full-time judges could be elected by the citizens in order to serve their communities’ local legal needs as a court of record. Judges of the District Court are elected on a non-partisan ballot for a six-year term. Vacancies are filled by the governor for the remainder of the term that the appointment is made for. District Courts may also employ magistrates, who serve in a quasi-judicial role for the court. The magistrate’s duties are limited by statute and by order of the Chief Judge of the relevant District Court, which may include conducting arraignments, setting bail, adjudicating small claims actions, presiding over informal traffic hearings and performing marriages.

Lincoln Park Police Department – The work of the Police Department consists of the preservation of the public peace and order, the apprehension of offenders, the protection of persons and property under the laws of the State, and the enforcement of the ordinances of the City.

Forms & Applications – The Lincoln Park city web page features an easy to use Document Center that provides easy access to public documents.
