Message From Your Sheriff

Dear Friend,

For over 30 years, I've dedicated my life to serving and protecting you, your family, your home and local area businesses. As your Sheriff, I consider it an honor and a privilege to continue to lead some of the Finest Public Safety and Law Enforcement Professionals the Eaton County Sheriff's Office has ever known. Together, as a team, we're working hard to provide you with the quality services you've come to know and trust from your Sheriff's Office.

Over the past few years, we have effectively and efficiently solved and prevented more crimes than ever before! Together, we've shut down Methamphetamine Labs; apprehended armed robbers; recovered stolen property; arrested child abusers and domestic violence criminals; while protecting and saving lives. We've provided you quality Emergency Services to help keep you safe from potential harm, during tornados, floods and other emergencies, while minimizing potential hazards in many areas. Our response has been immediate and second to none, because we're committed to serving and protecting you.

As the Sheriff of Eaton County, I've worked hard to enhance and improve volunteer and public safety services. Together, with the skills and expertise of our dedicated team of professionals, retired officers and special deputy volunteers, we've implemented many new and innovative programs. We've also partnered with several local governments to establish NEW Sheriffs Satellite Offices to better serve you and enhance our crime prevention efforts.

We continue to work hard to live within our budget. While some have grounded their patrol vehicle fleets and pulled their officers out of local area schools, we have not. Instead, we remain focused on the importance of serving and protecting all citizens, of all ages, from all backgrounds, throughout the communities we serve.

As a lifelong resident of Eaton County and active community volunteer for more than three decades, I understand and appreciate the diverse needs and challenges our citizens face. My service to you has helped me to better understand the importance of on-the-job experience at our Eaton County Sheriff's Office, which is more critical than ever before. Mike and his Car

As your Sheriff, I remain committed, doing my part, to ensure that all of Eaton County remains a safe place in which to live, work and raise our families. Remember... "Real Experience Matters, When Your Safety Counts."

Thank you for your continued support of our efforts.
