Shepherd Police Receives Generous Donation To Purchase New Speed Sign
If you are driving through the Village of Shepherd soon in Isabella County — watch your speed.
Thanks to a generous donation, there’s a new set of eyes reminding you to slow down.
The Shepherd Police Department was approached by a longtime Shepherd local last week who offered to help get the money needed for a new speed sign.
The chief says he found checks adding up to $3,000 on his desk the next day.
The new sign is state-of-the-art and portable.
As cars pass it, the sign sends information back to police.
The chief says it’s a proactive tool, not an enforcement tool…and a big help from the community.
"To see several groups and individuals step up and say I want this for our community I think says a lot about the shepherd community and I think it is an example of a lot of other local small communities,” says Chief Luke Sawyer.
The chief says the Shepherd Lions Club and Rotary also helped pay for the sign.
