Mecosta County Sheriff's Office shifts focus to better transparency

MECOSTA COUNTY — Despite stepping into his newly-elected position only weeks ago, Mecosta County Sheriff Brian Miller has shifted his office's focus on better community transparency.

"I think it's important the public knows who's serving," Miller said.

While initially taking a seat back and learning from the department on his first few days, Miller said the Mecosta County Sheriff's Office now has been focusing on better community engagement through the use of social media.

"It makes our jobs easier when we educate our community," he said.
