Excerpted From NBC 25: The Shiawassee County Sheriff’s Office says they can not put their “primary resources and efforts towards enforcement of the Governor Whitmer’s executive orders.”
In a Facebook post the office says their men and women of the department have taken an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States of America and the Constitution of the State of Michigan.
Sheriff Brian BeGole says they have received many calls and messages from residents and businesses in regards to the orders from the governor.
The office says, “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.
