GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Police Department is creating a new service area to better cover the downtown residential and commercial areas.

The specific boundaries of the new Central Service Area have not yet been determined. ┬áThe new area will be the department’s fifth service area, joining the North, South, East and West service areas.

The department says that the new service area was needed because of the area’s growth in residents and businesses, and an increase in visitors.

A police Lieutenant will be promoted to Captain to lead the area patrols. That will be announced at a later time.
