Holt residents will see a familiar face at the Ingham County Sheriff’s office starting this month as Lieutenant Chauncey Shattuck takes over leadership of the Delhi Division. Lt. Shattuck began his 14-year policing career in Delhi Township, training and working as a night shift patrol officer, and is enthusiastic to return to the community.
Lt. Shattuck has spent his career building relationships in Ingham County as a member of a number of multijurisdictional teams. He worked for three and a half years undercover as part of the narcotics division, and is currently the assistant team commander of the Ingham Regional Special Response Team. Prior to his return to Delhi Township, Lt. Shattuck oversaw the detective bureau, courts and transports, emergency operations center, and volunteer services as head of the Sheriff’s Office Staff Services Division. “I’m proud of the relationships built with law enforcement officers in other jurisdictions in the area,” he said. A proven leader in the community, Lt. Shattuck also played a key role in overseeing emergency management during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as in the implementation of body cameras for police in 2021.
Lt. Shattuck hopes the Delhi Division can continue to be an integral part of the community. “I’m looking forward to coming back to Delhi Township in a position where I’m able to affect change,” he said. The rise of violent crime in the area is one of his top priorities as he assumes his new role. “It’s important we focus our resources on being proactive and preventing crimes from taking place in the Township,” Lt. Shattuck said. “Being visible and having a vested interest in the community is the strongest tool we have in fighting violent crime.”
