37TH DISTRICT COURT
GENERAL INFORMATION

The 37th District Court exercises exclusive jurisdiction over the Cities of Warren and Center Line as the 37th (A) Warren District Court and 37th (B) Center Line District Court, respectively. The 37th District Court operates as two courthouses, one in Warren and another in Center Line.

Warren is located in the southwest corner of Macomb County. Warren's borders are 8 Mile Road (bordering Detroit), Dequindre Road (bordering Oakland County), 14 Mile Road (bordering Sterling Heights) and Hayes Road (bordering Roseville and Eastpointe). Home to nearly 140,000 residents, Warren is Macomb County’s most populated City and ranks as the third most populated City in Michigan.

 

Warren is home to a vast multitude of businesses both big and small including automotive juggernauts General Motors' Technical Center and Stellantis' (formerly Fiat and Chrysler) Warren Truck Plant, as well as the U.S. Army's TACOM (formerly Detroit Tank Arsenal) that manages the Army's ground equipment supply chain.

Quaint Center Line is located in the heart of Macomb County, is completely surrounded by Warren, and has a population of nearly 8,500. Although much smaller than Warren, Center Line is just as municipally resourceful and self-sufficient with their own police department and courthouse.

The cities of Warren and Center Line are the 37th District Court's jurisdictional boundaries. The 37th District Court's presiding Judges are Honorable Michael C. Chupa, Honorable Suzanne L. Faunce, and Honorable John M. Chmura.

37th DISTRICT COURT
PROBATION DEPARTMENT INFORMATION

The 37th District Court probation office is located in the 37th District Court building, 8300 Common Road, Warren, Michigan 48093.  Covered parking is provided free of charge in a City of Warren four story parking garage, that is adjacent to the city hall, across the street from the court building. The 37th Warren District Court building is also located next to the Warren Police Department.

Probation is a privilege as a grant of leniency and is the most prevalent alternative to incarceration.  In the 37th District Court, the probation officer works under the direction of the chief judge, judge, or court administrator, to conduct investigations and prepare informational reports. Those reports include a Pre-Sentence Report, Alcohol Assessment / Evaluation, Probation Violation Report, Amended Order Report, Transfer Investigation Report, and the Restitution Request Report, in addition to various informational reports. They assist the district court judge in determining the appropriate sentences of individuals brought before the court, as well as providing input regarding the current status of a probationer.  Although acting independently, the probation officer maintains a professional working relationship with police agencies and prosecutors. 


Prior to imposing an order of probation, the court may request that the probation department conduct a Pre Sentence Investigation.  The probation officer is entrusted with the responsibility to make appropriate recommendations to the court, and in order to do that the officer must be aware of the probationer’s life situation, i.e. educational achievements, family and residential status, employment, criminal background, and alcohol or drug issues.  That information is revealed only when a thorough investigation is conducted.  That may be performed at the probation office, at a place of incarceration, or an in-patient treatment facility, and equally important, in a timely manner. The officer will then prepare a Pre Sentence Report for the court that typically includes specific recommendations for supervision, and special conditions.  The Pre Sentence Report is only available for viewing by the judge of record for the purpose of passing sentence or establishing an order from the court, the attorney of record and in the attorney’s absence, the offender, and the probation department.  After passing sentence or establishing an order, the court shreds their copy of the Pre Sentence Report.

 

All of the 37th District Court Probation Officers are court appointed.  Although not union or civil service protected, they are under the bargaining unit of the city attorneys, and enjoy health and vacation benefits awarded to union protected employees. Probation officers do not accept gratuities, favors, money, or any other forms of reward from private vendors.  All of the referrals are made on a judgmental basis that best serves the probationer’s needs.  Cooperation, reliability, and affordable service from the vendors are all priorities.
