Employment Information

Top_Workplace_2022_Banner.pngLivingston County was named a 2022 Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press! Based solely on employee feedback, the Top Workplace title is a badge of honor. The County's top priority is providing effective and efficient services that improve the quality of life for all of our residents.

Livingston County covers approximately 512 square miles with 16 townships, 2 cities, 8 villages, and a population of approximately 195,000. We have 2 major Interstates running through the county which have made Livingston County the fastest growing county in Michigan for several years. With Flint to the North, Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti to the South, Detroit with its many suburbs to the East, and Lansing just West of our county line, you can see why Livingston County has become a "bedroom community."

The Sheriff's Office is the largest single law enforcement agency in Livingston County. Sheriff Deputies perform the majority of the law enforcement duties and emergency services in the county. In addition to the law enforcement duties we maintain the only jail, provide court security, marine patrols, civil division, Detective Bureau, and many other services.
