Sheriff Brian BeGole
Dedication to Service
Sheriff Brian BeGole comes from a family of public servants. His brother was a U.S. Customs Agent, his Uncle Lee, was Novi’s first police chief serving nearing 40 years, and his father, George, was an attorney for 34 years and a Judge in Shiawassee County’s 66th District Court for 16 years. Sheriff BeGole’s 32 years of law enforcement work has showcased his wish to be a public servant, not a politician. Now serving a second term as Sheriff he is the Chairman of the Law Enforcement Officers Regional Training Commission, A member of the Shiawassee Valley Fraternal Order of Police and an Executive Board member of the Michigan Sheriffs Association.
Dedication to Family
Sheriff Brian BeGole and his wife Tammy have their roots here in Shiawassee County, raising their children on BeGole family land in rural Antrim Township. His mother, Carol, still lives on the land, just down the road, in the 147-year-old brick farmhouse where Brian and his siblings grew up. His brother Bob keeps the BeGole farm running, and the family works to keep the buildings and grounds much like they would have been around the turn of the century.
Dedication to Community
Being raised by a Shiawassee County Judge instilled in Brian a sense of pride for his community that is ever-present. After graduating from the police academy, he came home to protect and serve his neighbors and to raise his family. He's been on the road keeping Shiawassee County and its residents safe for over 32 years. When Brian is home, he enjoys several hobbies, such as working on his barn using materials salvaged from old farms across the county, preserving our community's history and protecting its heritage.
