Warren Head

For St. Clair County Sheriff

My name is Warren Head and I am running for Sheriff of St. Clair County. My wife of 50 years and I have five children and 14 grandchildren. I am a law enforcement officer with over 50 years of experience. My law enforcement career started in 1967 when I enlisted in the US Air Force and served as an air policeman. After getting out of the Air Force in 1970, I was hired by the Mount Clemens Police Department which became my home for the next five years.

After hearing about a position in the St. Clair County Sheriff Department, I applied and was hired and served from 1978 to 2008. During that time, I worked in special units such as: road patrol, alcohol enforcement, accident investigator, drug task force, negotiator, and as a member of the SWAT team as a sniper. Currently, I am serving as Chief for the Yale Police Department.

In addition to my career in law enforcement, I also have a three-year Bible theology degree from Faith Bible Institute and attend church in Marysville, where I serve as a deacon.

After much thought and prayer, I am running for Sheriff of St. Clair County because I believe I can serve the people of St. Clair County and help the deputies be stronger and more efficient in providing the necessary support and safety to the citizens of our county.  I vow to protect and defend the rights and liberties of all residents, ensuring that the St. Clair County Sheriff’s office operates in strict accordance with the law and respects the dignity of every individual.

I am endorsed by the St. Clair County GOP (Republican Party) and the District 9 Republican Party.
