1 star review of Dearborn Police Department from 2019
"they pulled my daughter over for driving with no insurance, gave her a ticket she was on her way to work. Waited until she pulled off then 5 minutes later got pulled over again. Then instead of letting her talk. They pulled guns on her and called 3 more cops cars. I feel Dearborn police trafficking units are bullies. plus they did not read her any rights. Dearborn police already got a bad reputation. It needs to stop"
