He’s been in law enforcement for nearly 44 years and now a local sheriff says he’ll be hanging up his uniform at the end of 2020. Gary Biniecki has been serving the citizens of Sanilac County since 1976. Announced Friday, the Sanilac County Sheriff says he will not be seeking another four year term. Biniecki’s entire law enforcement career has been in the county, first as a corrections officer, later as a Seargant, and was promoted to Undersheriff in 2006. He was elected Sheriff in 2008. Biniecki says one of his biggest accomplishments over the years was overseeing a jail addition and renovation project. He also says Sanilac County has seen a reduction in crime and several millions of dollars worth of new equipment. Biniecki’s current term will expire at the end of 2020.
