Have a Safe Memorial Day This Memorial Day weekend the Alpena County Sheriff’s Office expects numerous people to visit our local lakes, rivers and outdoor attractions. While you’re enjoying the holiday, we encourage you to make safe choices for a fun and relaxing holiday weekend. Alpena County Sheriff’s Deputies will be conducting patrols in and around popular county recreational areas this Memorial Day. For those celebrating the weekend out in the water or other outdoor attractions, the Sheriff’s Office offers these safety tips: Boating: • Alcohol use is the leading known contributing factor in recreational boater deaths and a leading contributor in boating accidents. Help keep everyone safe by not drinking alcohol while on the water, or operating a boat after you have consumed alcohol. Also, refrain from operating a boat when taking legal or illegal drugs as those too can dangerously impair your judgment and reaction time. Swimming: • All rivers are dynamic and conditions can change rapidly. Anyone swimming in our local rivers should take caution. Hiking: • Even if you are just planning a short day hike, be sure to carry a flashlight, bring extra water and high-energy foods, pack a small first aid kit, dress properly for a hike and prepare for changes in the weather by bringing rain gear or a jacket. Be sure to tell somewhere where you are going and when you plan to return. Stay on an established trail and if in an unfamiliar area, bring a map. Camping: • If camping this weekend, be sure to practice proper campfire safety. Keep your fire at a manageable size and be sure to supervise children and pets near the fire. Never leave your campfire unattended. Driving: • Celebrate responsibly this Memorial Day weekend. Don’t drink alcohol and drive. Designate a sober driver or arrange a safe ride home if choosing to consume alcoholic beverages. • Report drunk drivers by calling 9-1-1. The Alpena County Sheriff’s Office wishes you a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend!

Our hearts and prayers go out to the families and victims of Texas' Santa Fe High School, be assured we are working with Alpena Public Schools and Superintendent Dr. John VanWagoner to prevent such a tragedy from occurring in our community.

"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." Let us pause today to remember the lives of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Beginning in 1962 with a proclamation signed by President John F. Kennedy, May 15th is designated each year as National Peace Officers Memorial Day, and the week in which it falls, as National Police Week.

New Release - Bomb Threat - Thunder Bay Junior High

Help us celebrate National Correctional Officers Week! On May 5, 1984, Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, delivered a proclamation designating the first week in May as National Correctional Officers Week. He called “upon officials of State and local governments and the people of the United States to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies and activities,” to recognize “the contributions of correctional officers to our Nation.” “Correctional officers have the difficult and often dangerous assignment of ensuring the custody, safety and well-being of the over 600,000 inmates in our Nation's prisons and jails. Their position is essential to the day-to-day operations of these institutions; without them it would be impossible to achieve the foremost institutional goals of security and control.” The Alpena County Jail is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by 15 dedicated corrections officers. Please help us recognize them for their service!

The Alpena County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce the addition of two new corrections officers to our team! Please help us welcome Kelly and Richard to their first week of service.
