Meet Brandon: Sheriff Deputy

I’m a people person and I enjoy helping others. So I knew working in law enforcement was the right path for me. At the start of my career, I thought it would just be arresting ‘bad guys’ -- but it’s so much more than that, because we’re on the ground, making a difference in our community. And while some days can be challenging, you feel like you’re part of a solution – which is very rewarding. Additionally, there’s a lot of opportunity for advancement here at the Sheriff’s Office. It has a high level of expectation, but it’s an extremely professional environment where your talent can be recognized.

Meet Brianna: Deputy Register Lead

“Growing up, my grandfather demonstrated the importance of serving your community. He was a County Commissioner and he guided our family in volunteering to help people in need. Years later, when I was ready to move on from my job in retail, I knew that I wanted to follow in his footsteps. So I began working for Macomb County in Probate Court, assisting individuals through what can be a complicated system. I listen to their issues, I make sure they feel heard and I provide guidance. It can be challenging, but I love what I do. I love helping people and I have a great team. We’re a family and we work hard together. And when things get tough, I think about my grandfather. My service continues his legacy, and it creates my own legacy too.”

Meet Colton: Design Technician

“I started as an intern with the Department of Roads but my interest was IT. In my role, I was able to demonstrate those skills, which caught the attention of leadership. They are always looking for team players and problem solvers, so I eventually became full-time. Now I’m creating a career, and have a future here. I get to do exciting work that I am passionate about. And the schedule is excellent. It leaves time for me to continue my education, and even better, I have time for my other passion - snowboarding with my friends.”

Meet Dennis: Protective Service Officer

"I’ve spent almost my entire professional career in public service. After I retired, I found that sitting on the couch wasn’t for me. I needed to get out of the house, to feel a sense of purpose. As public servants, it’s in our blood. This part time position gives me the independence and flexible schedule to serve my community and still allows me to enjoy my retirement. And when you have a job you care about, it’s not work. It’s a pleasure."

Meet Denotra: Shift Supervisor

At the Macomb County Juvenile Justice Center, I get to be a role model, a mentor, a teacher and a nurturer. There is a lot of support from the leadership and my coworkers - we’re all working to give these young people what they need so they have a better future.

Meet Jeffrey: Nursing Administrator

“I’ve been a registered nurse for nearly 20 years and when I relocated to Macomb, I chose to use my license to work with Community Mental Health. I wasn’t sure what to expect with outpatient services, but when I got to know the people served, I found that I really enjoyed my role. In my current position I educate, support and guide others that provide mental health services. And I also use my passion to develop new ways to find wellness - like creating vegetable gardens at our clinics. All told, I’m happy that my job has become a career where I can put people first.”
