Lapeer County Sheriff's Office News

Our own Sheriff's Office Sergeant Tim McGuckin had this article published giving some insight into what goes on in a law enforcement officers mind as they attend a law enforcement officers funeral when killed in the line of duty. This is one duty we all wish would not have to happen.

Yesterday, Deputy Linda Schell was invited to North Branch Headstart to explain what your Deputies do on a daily basis. Deputy Schell also went over the various tools we use (radio, cars, safety, etc.) and stressed how Law Enforcement is a friendly helping hand. Deputy Schell handed out "badges" to all the kids and had a wonderful time!

Yesterday evening, your Lapeer County Sheriff's Office and Lapeer County Central Dispatch held an information event on Smart 911 and our Sheriff's app. Thank you PAC for the great hospitality and the many great questions.

Today, LCISD held a Career Expo where Deputy Davis, along with Detective Sgt. Gormley (Lapeer City Police Department) spent the day providing valuable information for students throughout Lapeer County.

Here are the posted Trick or Treat times for this year in Lapeer County. Almont: 6-8 p.m. Brown City: 5-7 p.m. Columbiaville: 5-7 p.m. Goodrich: 6-7:30 p.m. Imlay City: 6-8 p.m. Lapeer: 6-8 p.m. Mayville: 6-7 p.m. North Branch: 6-8 p.m. Sheriff McKenna would like to emphasize the following safety tips: Walk Safely Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street. Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars. Trick or Treat With an Adult Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups. Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors. Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision. Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers. When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls. Drive Extra Safely on Halloween Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs. Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully. Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings. Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances. Trick-or-treating hours are generally 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours. Kids also will be heading out and returning beyond these hours, so please be alert! Keep our kids safe! Happy Halloween from your Lapeer County Sheriff's Office!

UPDATE: Deputy Byrd did a follow up with the owner of the goat yesterday. The goat actually ate a poisonous bush called a Yew Bush, which affects the neurological system. She said it did stand up yesterday and it was eating, so that's a good sign! All in a days work - Deputy Byrd responding to a call for an injured goat this morning! The caller asked if we could share this photo and requested we share how passionate Deputy Byrd was in comforting the injured animal. This little guy even convinced Deputy Byrd to share her water! Calls range in a wide spectrum of incidents, but we know how important each call is to each caller. #h20#thegoat#communitystrong

As we remember the victims of September 11th, don't forget all those that sacrificed in the line of duty and a community that came together to help one another in a time of need.
