Office of the Eaton County Sheriff - Weekly Update

Posted on: February 5, 2020

[ARCHIVED] Weekly Update Article February 3, 2020

Overall the Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 1,000 calls for service/events.  Our higher call volumes occurred in the following areas:  Alarms (26), Car/Deer Accidents (22), Assist Citizen/Motorist Assists (42), Check Well Beings (21), Domestic Disputes (11), Shoplifting Complaints (22), Larcenies (16), Drug Offense/Overdose (4), Property Damage Hit & Run (7), Suicidal Threat or Attempt (10), Property Damage Crashes (28), Suspicious Subject/Situation/- Vehicle (44), Traffic Hazards (21), Traffic Stops (377), Traffic Violations (33), Vacation Checks (20).

Citizens Police Academy – A few years ago I saw a need to give citizens an in-depth knowledge of the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office and the functions we perform in the service to our citizens.  This effort became known as the Citizens Police Academy. 

This program was an 11-week Academy that was held one night a week.  Here are just a few of the topics covered:  Ride-Alongs, Firing Range, Patrol Operations and Tactics, Dive Team, Traffic Enforcement and Accident Reconstruction, an overview of the Corrections Division with a tour of the Jail, Use of Force, Central Dispatch and Emergency Services, Detective Bureau and the processing of crime scenes, Fraud and Computer Forensics, Meth Team Enforcement and Tri-County Metro, Special Response Team, Hostage Negotiations, our K-9 program, and the Volunteers in Police Service.

The Sheriff’s Office held two Academies, then there seemed to be a lack of interest.  Recently, I received a call asking when we might be holding another Academy.  I am excited at the prospect of doing this again.  No dates or definite arrangements have been made yet, but if you would be interested in attending a Citizens Police Academy, please email Jerri Nesbitt at Jnesbitt@eatoncounty.org or call her at 517-543-5019.   

Yours in Public Safety,

Sheriff Tom Reich
