The Royal Oak Police Department handles many drinking and driving cases simply due to the fact that Royal Oak is a major destination for drinking due to its many bars and restaurants. Having handled many Royal Oak drinking and driving cases, we have dealt with the Royal Oak Police Department in all sorts of different situations. Royal Oak cops are hit or miss on experience in handling OWI cases and we have had issues with their tactics in the past. A major consideration in any drunk driving case in Royal Oak is that the Royal Oak PD requests more in costs than any other city or township in Oakland County.
While the Royal Oak cops can be tough, the City prosecutor's office is a reasonable organization which is willing to make deals and work with us on our cases. As our office is one block away from both the Police Department and the Court, we have seen it all with the Royal Oak Police.
