A prime example of community policing at its best, the members of Mackinac Island Police Department are a group of good people interested in service to the community. Community policing is a collaborative effort between members of the community and local law enforcement to help manage and reduce crime.

In the summer, Mackinac Island’s police force expands to meet the needs of residents, employees, and visitors. Summer patrol is on foot and bicycle, with a motorized police vehicle available for emergencies.

Winter police work requires a smaller force, and a core department patrols a community of approximately 500 year-around residents, sometimes on snowmobile. The police vehicle is used to transport senior citizens to church, the medical center, the airport and to the shops downtown.

Chief Doug Topolski

Chief Topolski grew up in and around Detroit where he worked as a police officer for the Detroit Police Department before retiring as a Lieutenant from the Dearborn Police Department.  After retiring from the Dearborn PD, he worked seasonally for the Mason County Sheriff’s Department’s Marine Unit where he operated patrol vessels on Lake Michigan and inland waterways.  He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from Madonna University and began a Masters Degree program at the University of Michigan Dearborn before being hired by the City of Mackinac Island. 

Doug is married and has three adult daughters.  His wife, Jaye, is a nurse who has worked as a travel nurse in the past at the island’s medical center.  Jaye will be living on the island while also working remotely for Henry Ford Hospital and in-person for Hospice of Michigan. 

Chief Topolski’s hobbies include music, cooking, various genres of history and you may see him around the island walking his large, yellow English Labrador Retriever, Wagner P. Barker.  He is looking forward to meeting many island residents in the coming months both in person and virtually, to build the kind of relationships that maintain trust and a strong sense of community. 

Corporal Kenneth Hardy, Jr.

Ken Hardy, Jr. is a 3rd generation police officer following his grandfather Don Hardy (Chief of Police of South Haven, MI) and his father Ken Hardy (Sgt. of State Police MSP 83 St. Ignace Post). Ken graduated from Western Michigan University with a bachelor degree in Criminal Justice. Originally from St. Ignace, MI, Ken moved to Mackinac Island in July 1994 and was promoted to Corporal on October 5, 2008.

Ken wanted to follow in his father's path growing up. He is married to Island native, Vanessa Hardy (Smith) and has two boys, Brady and Henry. Working on the island is very "community policing" oriented, ranging from giving senior citizens rides in the winter to bike and foot patrol in the summer.

Corporal Andrew Dziobak

After graduating from Lansing Community College with an associate's degree in criminal justice, Andrew Dziobak completed the Mid-Michigan Police Academy in Lansing, MI. He has been with the Mackinac Island Police Department since 1998 and was promoted to Corporal on October 5th, 2008.

Andrew enjoys working and living on Mackinac Island, because it's a close-knit community, where talking to one another is an everyday thing and a very important part of community policing.  Andrew is married and has one child.  Mackinac Island has become Andrew and his family's home and it is a great community to live and work in.

Officer Cory Kaminen

Cory Kaminen grew up in Ishpeming, MI and became a Naval Quartermaster (navigation) aboard the USS Guitaro and the USS Chicago fast attack submarines stationed in San Diego, CA.

In 1993, Cory left active duty to pursue an associates degree in Law Enforcement, attending Hawkeye Tech College in Waterloo, IA, and receiving his degree in 1996. In 1997, he moved back to Ishpeming to attend Northern Michigan Police Academy.

In 1996, Cory entered back into the Navy as a reservist and retired from the reserves in 2013. In 2001, he was activated and traveled to Bahrain in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Noble Eagle for 6 months.

In 1998, Cory was hired to work as a Mackinac Island Police Officer and started as a seasonal officer until he returned from the 6 months in Bahrain. He's been working as a full time year round officer since 2002.

Cory has a home in the Village on Mackinac Island and he is married with two children. As of May 2014, Cory qualified as Fire I and II and he's recently joined the Volunteer Fire Department.

Officer Justin Bradford

Justin Bradford is a decorated veteran of the United States Army. After leaving the service in 2014 Bradford attended Grand Rapids Community College. He graduated their police academy with an associates degree in criminal justice and certified in addiction studies. While attending the police academy Bradford was a cadet with East Grand Rapids Public Safety.

The internship generated an interest in the community policing aspect of law enforcement. Bradford was hired as a seasonal officer with the Mackinac Island Police Department summer 2018. After staying through the winter he was offered a full-time position spring 2019. He believes police work on Mackinac Island offers an opportunity to focus on community policing.
