Weekly Update Article October 14, 2019

Overall the Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 852 calls for service/events. Our higher call volumes were in the following areas: Alarms (41), Car/Deer Accidents (32), Assist Citizen/Motorist Assists (29), Check Well Beings (26), Domestic Disputes (17), Shoplifting Complaints (31), Larcenies (14), Disorderly Person or Subject (13), Civil Complaints (10), Personal Injury Crashes (4), Property Damage Crashes (33), Suspicious Subject/Situation/Vehicle (48), Traffic Hazards (30), Traffic Stops (135), Traffic Violations (36), Vacation Checks (5).

The month of October is a busy one for national recognitions. Domestic Violence Awareness Month is one of them I didn’t want to overlook. Since January 1, 2019, the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office has responded to 593 domestic dispute calls for service. Domestic disputes are not just between husbands and wives, but are also between parents and their kids, boyfriends and girlfriends, grandkids and grandparents, etc. It’s not just punches and black eyes -- it’s yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats and isolation. It’s stealing a paycheck, keeping tabs online, non-stop texting, constant use the silent treatment, or calling someone stupid so often they believe it.

If you know someone or maybe are a victim yourself, there are many national and local resources dedicated to offering assistance, services, or maybe you just need someone to listen. Here are just a few –

Nationally –

  • National Domestic Violence Hotline - www.ndvh.org, phone: 800-799-(SAFE) 7233
  • Break The Cycle - www.breakthecycle.org, phone: 866-331-9474.

Locally, we are fortunate to have –

  • Siren Shelter in Charlotte - www.sireneatonshelter.org, phone: 517-543-0748

Yours in Public Safety,

Sheriff Tom Reich
