WT renews its
sheriff contract

Observer Special Writer
      Washington Township will continue to use the Macomb County Sheriff Department for police protection following a 3-year contract approval Dec. 5.
       "It's definitely the way to go," Supervisor Dan O'Leary said.
       The contract will cost the township $983,000 each year.
       "It's the best deal in town," he said, adding that it would cost the township much more to have its own police force.
       The board voted unanimously to approve the contract that will begin January 2013 and end Dec. 31, 2015.
       In the meantime, O'Leary said they are still working with the sheriff on the lack of police protection in Ray and Richmond townships. The issue they're looking to address is the lapse of continuity that's caused when one of the Washington deputies responds to an emergency and a deputy from another area has to drive in and take over patrol.
       "It's `what could go wrong?' is the issue," he said.
