Eaton County Sheriff Tom Reich, a 28-year veteran of law enforcement, announced he is running for a second term as sheriff.

 

“I’m proud of what we have achieved as a department during our first term, but there’s plenty more to be done,” Reich said. “At the top of my list is continuing our successful crime reduction through strategic patrol efforts, further development of evidence-based policing strategies, and ensuring the best training and technology are available to our deputies as we strive to make our communities the safest in our state.”

 

In the first three years of Reich’s leadership, statistics from 2013-2015 show a 12 percent reduction in violent/assaultive crimes, a 35 percent reduction in burglaries, 17 percent reduction in larcenies, and 35 percent reduction in malicious destruction of property when compared to 2010-2012. Reich credits the reductions to the hard work and dedication of the department’s professional deputies and command officers.

 

“My goal is to work every day to make sure Eaton County has a highly-trained effective team of deputies prepared to keep the public safe in any and every situation,” he said.

 

Reich holds an associate’s degree in criminal justice from Lansing Community College,  certifications from U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Secret Service, Michigan State Police, the National Sheriffs Institute and is a graduate of the F.B.I. Executive Leadership Academy.

 

Reich and his wife Brenda reside in Eaton Rapids Township.
