By law, applicants for the top law enforcement job have to be registered to vote in Macomb County, be at least 18, and a United States citizen.

Hackel’s successor will be chosen by a special committee made up of the county’s chief probate judge, prosecutor and clerk. The panel will meet again in mid-December to decide who they’ll interview.

The sheriffs office has the largest county-funded budget.
