Increased Police Presence at Tip-Up Town

Posted: Updated:

With the large crowds Tip-up Town draws to Houghton Lake, police are taking extra measures to ensure everyone stays safe.

The Roscommon County Sheriff's Department will be using their snowmobile patrols to monitor the lake.

They will also have extra patrol cars out at night.

Sheriff Randy Stevenson says his deputies will make themselves as visible to event-goers should they need them.

Stevenson says they usually don't run into problems during Tip-Up Town, but want to make sure visitors know they are available should they need help.
