2016 has brought its share of challenges, not the least of which has been racial and ethnic tensions from the police shooting deaths of unarmed black men around the country, to the campaign rhetoric of the President-elect, to the white supremacist messages spray-painted on campus buildings at Eastern Michigan University.  The Washtenaw County Sheriff is hoping, by taking it head-on, this area will be a model for how to address these issues.

The new year always brings new experiences, and this year includes a new president.
