Orion is known for some of the best police protection and one of the lowest crime rates in the area.
Since 1981 the community has enjoyed police services contracted from the Henry County Sheriff's Department. Three full-time officers are assigned to duty in Orion, with part-time officers filling in the remaining shifts.
Full-time officers currently assigned to Orion are Joe Femali, Pat Coppejans, and Chad Baze. These officers bring many years of experience to the job.
Police officers not only deter crime but provide good enforcement of local ordinances, such as junk vehicles, animal control, and parking issues.
Call 911 for emergency police service. For non-emergency service, dial 526-3403.
