Two additional deputies will be joining the ranks in Rochester Hills in 2018 as Rochester Hills City Council on Monday, December 11, approved an amended contract for services with the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
The city currently has a two-year contract with the sheriff's office, which requested the city amend the current contract to add one deputy and one patrol investigator, Rochester Hills Chief Financial Officer Joe Snyder said. The additional positions will be included with no extra cost.
The amended contract will take effect on January 1, 2018.
The additional staff will bring the total number of contracted sheriff's deputies assigned to the city to 62. Staffing will include one sheriff's captain; two lieutenants; six patrol sergeants; one detective sergeant; 37 deputy II positions; two deputy II positions with no vehicle; 11 patrol investigators; one tech assistant; and one account clerk.
Council unanimously approved the amended contract.
