Officer MacLean - Personal Message
Hello, my name is Michael MacLean. I'm originally from a small town south of Boston. I moved to Highland Village in 2004 and began volunteering with the Highland Village Police Auxiliary in 2008. It was my experiences volunteering with HVPD that sparked my interest in Law Enforcement and set me on the path to attend and graduate from the Collin County Law Enforcement Academy. I feel very fortunate, not only to live in the community, but also to be a part of such a community focused police department. In my off time, I enjoy time with family and friends, as well as outdoor activities like camping, hiking, and mountain biking. I grew up riding motorcycles both on and off road and like to listen to music of all kinds. I hope to be a positive influence and look forward to working with residents to meet the goals and expectations of the community.
If you ever have any questions about safety or crime please give us a call and we will be happy to meet with you. Our job as your AOR Officer is to monitor Area 8 for crime conducive conditions and to make certain that your questions and concerns are addressed promptly. While patrolling Area 8 we look for things such as suspicious people, suspicious vehicles, faded traffic and street signs, and children who forgot their safety helmets.
There are approximately 380 homes, 1,230 residents and no businesses in AOR 8.
This Area is located in the middle of Highland Village and experiences relatively little crime throughout the year.
Traffic can be a concern in Area 8 because it includes portions of Highland Village Road, Highland Shores Blvd. and Briarhill Blvd. and is the primary route to Christa McAuliffe Elementary, Briarhill Middle and DKH Preschool.
In regards to crime, residents should be aware of construction near their homes and be watchful for suspicious persons or vehicles in their neighborhoods. Construction site thefts occasionally occur and residents are our best resource to notify us of unusual activity.
