Bonds are only accepted through the courts or through our jail office located INSIDE our main office in Mt. Clemens. Also, we do not have anyone employed at our office with the last name of Walker.

Warning! Graphic Content Recently we participated in the lip sync challenge and tried to create substance abuse awareness. This problem is everywhere and affects more than those who use. It affects family, friends, and even those just traveling down the road. If you or someone you know needs help to regain a clean and sober life, please take that first step. As a reminder, our doors are always open with HOPE NOT HANDCUFFS. On 10-25-18, at approx. 2:00am, a Macomb County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle in Harrison Township. The vehicle disobeyed all attempts to get it stopped and began to flee police. Stop sticks were deployed and the vehicle’s tires were damaged. As deputies attempted to box in the vehicle to get it stopped, the vehicle crashed into two fully marked deputy vehicles. The suspect vehicle drove off road and came to a rest. The driver and passenger were instructed by several deputies, with drawn pistols, to show their hands. The passenger complied, however, the driver had other priorities. As you can clearly see in this deputy’s body camera, the driver ignores deputies’ commands and begins smoking crack cocaine. After refusing to open the doors for deputies, both females were removed from the vehicle and taken into custody. Neither female, nor any deputy was injured during this incident. The driver, Kristi Rettig, 36, out of Eastpointe is charged with flee and elude, assault with a dangerous weapon, possession of a controlled substance, and operating while license suspended. The passenger, Alexandra Weed, 28, out of Melvindale is charged with possession of a controlled substance. This epidemic is real.

Mark your calendars sports fans! And watch out coaches - we run a lot faster without all that "police gear" on. 💙😂🤩💙

Stay Safe This Halloween! Make sure costumes fit correctly and can be seen by others. Reflective tape and glow sticks are helpful. Masks should not obstruct vision. 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. Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Walk on sidewalks when provided. Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars. Drive safe on Halloween. Use extra caution in areas with trick or treating and do not let things within your vehicle distract you. Be especially careful when backing up and watch for trick-or-treaters who may dart out in front of you. Have fun and be safe!

If you have any information on this incident or the know identity of either of these persons, please contact Det. Edringer at 586-307-9363.

On 10/22/18, our deputies took a report in the area of 24 Mile and Romeo Plank of a vehicle window being shot out with what appears to be a b.b. gun. The suspect vehicle is described as an early 2000's model Buick. The suspect vehicle is traveling down the street and stops in front of the victim's house. One round strikes the victim's vehicle window and the suspect proceeds to continue traveling down the street. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. LaFriniere at 586-469-6634. Thank you for your help!

DID YOU KNOW? Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don't: yet only a quarter of teens report having these conversations. Red Ribbon Week, the oldest and the largest drug prevention campaign in the nation, is your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started. The National Family Partnership organized the first Nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign. NFP provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign™. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America. This year's theme is Life Is Your Journey. Travel Drug Free. Visit to learn more about Red Ribbon Week.

Last week, the Transportation Improvement Association (TIA) presented transportation safety awards during its 2018 Annual Meeting and Law Enforcement Appreciation Breakfast at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. The awards honored individuals and agencies for making a tremendous impact on improving transportation safety through engineering, education, and enforcement. “Congratulations to the award recipients for their leadership in creating a safer transportation system,” said Jim Santilli, CEO of TIA. “They are true heroes. I commend them for going above and beyond to save lives and prevent injuries.” The Macomb County Sheriff's Office is honored to have been one of the award recipients for Operation Ghost Rider. Distracted driving is a dangerous behavior that can have tragic consequences. In an effort to change driver behavior and reduce distracted driving, Operation Ghost Rider was launched in Macomb County on April 25, 2017. Operation Ghost Rider uses unmarked spotter vehicles, which contain a law enforcement passenger. When the spotters observe a distracted driver, they radio a fully marked law enforcement unit to initiate a traffic stop. The program is so unique that The Wall Street Journal featured it as a national story. Participating agencies have included the Auburn Hills Police Department, Clinton Township Police Department, Macomb County Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police, Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Shelby Township Police Department, Sterling Heights Police Department, and Utica Police Department. During a total of 18 hours of enforcement in 2017, law enforcement officers conducted more than 907 traffic stops resulting in 726 citations and 34 arrests. During the latest mobilization earlier this year, 49 officers (state, county, and local) stopped 530 vehicles, issued 440 citations, and made 9 arrests in 6 hours.

On August 26,2018, at approximately 10:05pm, a 15 year old girl was riding her bicycle on EB Pilgram Street near Norway Ave in Washington Township when she was struck from behind by a vehicle. The 15 year old stated that vehicle gave her a light bump and then struck her hard the second time causing her to fly forward off her bicycle. She ran to a nearby house where the resident contacted her parents and rendered aide. The 15 year old stated that her bicycle hit the front center of the vehicle, closer to the passenger side. She described the vehicle as a tan or silver SUV, bigger than a Suburban, having older style square shaped headlights.

LaFriniere at 586-469-6634. The 15 year old victim is in good health at this time, however, we are still looking to find the person responsible.
