In addition to the Patrol and Staff Operations Divisions, the Canton Police Department is a member in several area consortiums. The department has been the lead agency in the development of several consortiums in the past 2 decades.

The consortium concept was developed as a means to provide investigative resources to local departments who cannot afford to staff and equip stand-alone units within their own agencies. Several agencies in the Western Wayne county area have teamed up with the Michigan State Police and the Wayne county Sheriff's Department to provide the benefit of regional units in return for their monetary contribution and/or contribution of officers from their own agencies. The Canton Police Department is currently a member of the following consortiums:
  • Western Wayne Community Response Team
  • Western Wayne Criminal Investigations
  • Western Wayne Special Operations Team
