Police patrols increased at old hospital

Anyone contemplating a visit to the deteriorating and abandoned state psychiatric hospital on Seven Mile Road in Northville has been warned that visiting the site could well result in an expensive citation for trespassing.

The Northville Township Police Department has significantly increased patrols near the property in an effort to ensure the safety of those attempting to visit the site, officials said. 

 The township recently installed a 24-hour security system to help prevent trespassing and vandalism. 

Police officials cautioned that trespassers will be ticketed and that the area does include multiple hazards.

“Let's all work together to keep our neighborhood secure and peaceful,” officials said.
