MIDLAND COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
The Sheriff's Office is responsible to run the Jail for the County. We have been in our new location since December 30, 2009, which has 250 beds. It is currently supervised with twenty-one full-time, six part-time and two temporary part-time staff members. Midland County's new Jail is located at 101 Fast Ice Drive, Midland, Michigan 48642 (near the Civic Center off Bay City Road). If you wish to contact the jail by phone, you may call 989 832-6612. Listen carefully to the prompts, and they will direct you to the proper person for your questions.
We have changed the Road Patrol Division to the C.A.R. Division: Citizens Assistance Responders. This was a part of our changing of philosophy. Patrol indicates that we are proactive and we prevent criminal activity, in reality we respond and provide assistance to the citizens. We do not have the staffing to support a patrol division.
The County decided to reduce our budget by eliminating the D.A.R.E. officer. I will continue to have a Deputy teaching the D.A.R.E. program without the funding. We will do that by cutting services in other areas, like reducing the number of deputies available for Court Security or Citizens Assistance Responders, during the time that we will be in the schools teaching the D.A.R.E. program.
Our new website was up and running in 2006. This allows us to work together and communicate better because of the technology that is available. I receive information on the web and I route it to the correct person that needs the information. At times we get questions, and other times we get tips on activities occurring throughout the County. We have even received tips that have helped us solve criminal activities and locate traffic violators. We just opened up our Cold Case files and they are posted on our website.
I will continue to share information with the citizens, the News Media and other Law Enforcement Agencies. It is the key that helps solve crimes and provides the information needed to help keep our roads and properties safe.
Again, thank you for giving me this opportunity to serve you, the citizens of Midland County.
Sheriff Scott Stephenson
