Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton is asking residents to become a 'interrupter' this Saturday, May 14th.

It's a grassroots effort aimed at getting neighbors talking to each other in hopes of making the community a safer place.

Volunteers will go door-to-door to help stem violence and make people more accountable for their behavior.

I spoke to the sheriff about several events going on in the community involving his department.

Sheriff Clayton also talks about a summer work program for local youths and a meeting taking place this Saturday with local law enforcement aimed at increasing communication with the Arab American community.
