We have received many calls, text messages, and emails from local businesses and local residents regarding Governor Whitmer's Executive Orders and the Sheriff's Office position on those orders, especially since the Michigan Legislature did not extend the state of emergency beyond April 30 as required by law. The legality of that is a judicial branch determination.
In the meantime, the women and men of Shiawassee County Sheriff's Office have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America and the Constitution of the State of Michigan. Through this period of uncertainty, I continue to remind myself that we derive our authority from the consent of the governed, the great people of Michigan. It is our responsibility to serve and protect the citizens of Shiawassee County and to ensure their rights as described in both State and Federal Constitution.
As always, we will respond to all calls for service and will address each call with a prudent use of discretion. We are committed to keeping the peace in this community. Our goal is to ensure that everyone feels safe and is treated fairly. With limited resources, staffing and facilities, our priority focus will be on enforcing duly passed laws for the protection of Shiawassee County citizens. I have decided, within my authority, that our office cannot and will not divert our primary resources and efforts towards enforcement of the Governor Whitmer's executive orders.
We recognize many people are struggling and have diverse concerns regarding the current coronavirus situation. I want to remind everyone that the eyes of this State and even the Nation are focused on our commmunity. I'm asking you to remain calm, peaceful, and considerate of all people as we wait for the courts to rule.
