Greg Stone running as aGreg Stone, a lifelong resident of Macomb County, will be running for sheriff on the Democratic ticket in the August primary.
Democrat for MC sheriff
Stone, a 35-year veteran of the Macomb County Sheriff Department, retired last year as a lieutenant.
"My goal is to be a community-orientated sheriff working with our residents to make Macomb County a safer place to live," said Stone.
Stone said he has worked in most major areas of the sheriff department including corrections, road patrol, court security, undercover, detective, homeland security and command.
"The challenges we face are broad and range from homeland security and terrorism, adequate correctional space, declining numbers of officers on the streets, and a rash of criminal actiivity involving home invasion, drugs, bank and store robbery," said Stone. "Our families and neighborhoods are under assault."
Stone said he understands public safety and has a four point plan to bring safety to families and neighborhoods. The four-point plan is:
• A south county in-take station to free up local police officer time for more street patrol.
• More cops on the street to help keep the criminals out of neighbohoods."
• A low-cost prisoner work camp.
• Real and fair cooperation and honest patrol agreements with local communities and police departments.
"Throughout my career in the sheriff department, I saw and fostered improvements in public safety," he said. "But much more needs to be done to protect our families, neighborhoods, communities and businesses."
