Shop with a Cop 2016 is a Wrap!
The WCSO takes particular pride in this program as it is an entirely staff generated initiative designed to provide children in need with an opportunity to shop for gifts for themselves and those whom they love. Selected by school social workers on the basis of demonstrated need, these are children who might not otherwise have had much of a holiday.
Sheriff Jerry L. Clayton is proud to announce the most recent promotions within the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office.
Congratulations to all!
