About Doug Lloyd
A Letter from Doug
In the Spring of 2013, I was honored to be appointed to the position of Eaton County Prosecuting Attorney by Circuit Court Judges Janice K. Cunningham and Jeffrey L. Sauter. Due to the timing of this appointment, I was required to seek election in the the November 2014 election which I did and Won! I had to run for re-election for 2016 in the first contested election since 1972 and won! I won again in 2020 and will need your help as I run again in 2024.
Crime in Eaton County Affects all of us. When one person in our community is victimized, we all suffer. I have been dedicated to the field of prosecution for over 26 years. As the chief law enforcement officer for Eaton County, I believe in a tough, no-nonsense and fair approach to prosecuting criminals. I believe the Eaton County Prosecutor's Office is one of the most effective and efficient offices in the state when it comes to seeking justice, protecting victims' rights and being a good steward of taxpayer dollars.
It is extremely important to me to have an office which is able to handle all cases, especially major crimes. My office consists of a highly-qualified, experienced and dedicated staff that has convicted major criminals including murderers, rapists, armed robbers, drug dealers and home invaders. The public also needs to know that their prosecutor will look at each case and decide if the individual needs punishment or to be placed in 1 of 5 specialty courts which will hopefully allow the defendant to finish his probation and become a successful member of our community. That is what my office does every day when we review and prosecute cases here in Eaton County.
Continuing to serve as your Eaton County Prosecuting Attorney will take a lot of hard work and financial support. I need your help to fight any opposition. Mailings, yard signs and advertisements are extremely expensive. With your generous contribution, we will be working together to maintain an experienced and effective Prosecutor's Office committed to seeking justice and protecting victims' rights, while also continuing other essential programs like the Eaton County Economic Crimes Unit (ECU). Crime in Eaton County touches us all. I thank you in advance for supporting me as I seek to continue to protect our community in the years to come.
