Township welcomes new officers to department

Members of the Northville Township Police Department officially welcomed two new police officers last week.

Officer Derrek Jennings and Ofc. Justin Clenney were sworn in by Deputy Clerk Katie Anderson in front of their family members and township staff last Monday. 

Jennings previously worked for the Davison City Police Department, the same community where he grew up. He was a police officer there from March 2016-December 2021, serving as a firearms instructor and a field training officer.

From 2014 to 2018, he also was a Davison firefighter from 2014-2018. He holds part-time positions as an officer for the Dryden Township Police Department and the Mount Morris City Police Department.

Clenney is returning to Northville Township after a 13-year career in public safety. Clenney worked for a decade as a 911 dispatcher for the township and after attending the police academy, became a Northville Township police officer. He then joined the Ann Arbor Police Department and is returning to Northville Township from Ann Arbor.
