The STOPPED program has been implemented in Oakland County.  Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard is pleased to bring a new tool to Oakland County parents in the fight to address risky driving by their teens….STOPPED (Sheriffs Telling Our Parents and Promoting Educated Drivers)

Sponsored by the Michigan Sheriff's Association (MSA) and State Farm Insurance, parents simply register your young person's vehicle online by following this link and a STOPPED sticker is mailed to your home to be placed on the registered vehicle’s windshield. 

The sticker itself serves as a visible reminder to the young driver to drive safely and responsibly, and it also serves as a deterrent.  If he or she is pulled over for any reason, the parents will receive a letter regarding the incident.  Information in the letter includes the time, location, number of passengers, reason for the stop and whether a citation was issued.  

The notification feature makes parents aware of any potential problems and enables them to enforce rules they have set regarding their teenagers driving privileges. 

Sheriff Michael Bouchard is pleased to join the MSA and State Farm Insurance to offer parents this voluntary notification system that extends their watchful eyes and raises the level of awareness for drivers under 21.

In Oakland County, the following list of police agencies are participating partners in this program:

Auburn Hills Police Department
