Welcome to June Clare County, FINALLY! During the month of May the Clare County Central Dispatch loaded 3,344 incidents throughout Clare County. There were 21 Home Invasion/Breaking and Entering cases investigated. There were 6 in Hayes, 3 in Harrison, 2 each in Lincoln, Surrey, and Hamilton, and 1 each in Freeman, Garfield, Clare, Winterfield, and Frost. Several of these occurred over the winter at unknown times being cabins in our county. Over the Memorial Weekend Holiday there were 577 incidents in Clare County. There were 18 car crashes with 6 of them having injuries. We currently have 141 inmates in jail which consist of 78 Local, 15 renters, 3 Michigan Department of Corrections, and 45 Federal.

Hopefully summer is upon us and with that we would like to remind everyone to be safe out there. Our three Schools will soon be letting our children out for their summer break, please slow down a little. Boaters and ORV enthusiast have already started to fill our lakes and trails. We have Deputies working the waters, county roads, and trails of this county for the summer. If you aren’t familiar with the Clare County ORV Ordinance you go to www.clareco.net, click on “About Clare County” and you will find the ORV Ordinance.

On Sunday June 9, 2019 at 12:30pm at the Clare County Veterans Freedom Park the unveiling of the Vietnam War Statue will be held. A lunch will also be provided for those who wish to stay after the ceremony. On Saturday June 15, 2019 from 9am to 3pm we will hold our annual “Hot Rods & Hot Dogs” Neighborhood Watch event in downtown Lake George. Come on out and enjoy the craft and car show along with kids games, dunk tank, and many other things to see and do. The Lincoln Township Fire Department will also be there with the Smoke House for people to go through.

This has been weighing heavily on my mind and I am honored to even be typing an article as Sheriff in this great country. June 6, 2019 marks 75 year anniversary of the D-Day Invasions at Normandy during WWII. I often think of the sacrifices that they gave and what it meant not only to the United States, but to the entire world. There aren’t many of the WWII veterans still alive to talk about that war, only the memories that they have passed down. Let us always honor all of our Veterans who served and are serving this country. The sacrifices they gave and continue to give to keep us the freest country in the world.

Like Always,
GOD Bless
Sheriff John S Wilson
