MACOMB TOWNSHIP — At the May 22 Board of Trustees meeting, the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office was recognized for its community service.

Linda Walter, a representative from the Michigan Recreation Parks Association awards committee, said that, on April 17 in East Lansing, 31 community organizations statewide received recognition for community service.

Macomb Township Parks and Recreation nominated the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.

“When law enforcement connects and engages the community, a very special relationship occurs, one that involves children from an early age looking at officers with trust and admiration,” she said.

Macomb Township Parks Director Sal DiCaro said the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office has always had a stellar relationship with the Macomb Township Parks and Recreation Department since its 1998 inception.

The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office Macomb Township Substation, located at 19925 23 Mile Road, between Romeo Plank and Card roads, is led by Lt. Steven Briney.

“The staff goes above and beyond to keep our special events safe and running smoothly,” DiCaro said. “While on duty, they are a presence at our 11 signature free events, including Music in the Park, Rosco’s picnic palooza and Movie Under the Stars.”

Members of the Sheriff’s Office also volunteer at the Future Firefighter and Jr. Deputy Camp, giving local children an opportunity to get up close and personal with the sheriff’s deputies.

Over the past few years, the Sheriff’s Office has provided squad cars, motorcycles, marine, horse and canine division, a SWAT tank, hovercraft, and helicopters for Tons O’ Trucks.

“The MCSD has been a great partner to the MTPR department,” DiCaro said. “We always know we can count on them. They help to make Macomb Township a good place to live, work and play.”
