State Rep. Cam Cavitt today awarded a legislative tribute to retiring Police Chief Joel Jett of the Alpena Police Department.
“I would like to extend my gratitude and admiration to Chief Joel Jett of the Alpena Police Department on the occasion of his retirement,” said Cavitt, of Cheboygan. “Chief Jett has dedicated 32 years of his life to serve and protect the people of Alpena, and the state of Michigan. His bravery on a daily basis is a testament to his dedication to our community and state.
“Chief Jett’s commitment to excellence in public safety, his leadership in the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, and his service to our country as a military policeman with the Army Reserves are just a few examples of his unwavering dedication to serving others. He has earned the utmost respect of our community, and all of Michigan. He will be deeply missed, but we wish him all the best in his retirement.”
Throughout his career, Chief Jett has faced the daily challenges of police work with courage and dedication, earning the respect of the entire City of Alpena and the state of Michigan. He was an active member of the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police and served as President of the Northern Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police, as well as an appointed commissioner to the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission.
“This move by the feds is effectively spitting in the faces of all the sportsmen and wildlife experts that have been working diligently to preserve sturgeon populations and fishing seasons for decades,” Cavitt said. “Sturgeon fishing is a cultural staple in Northeast Michigan that the Black Lake community hosts an annual festival in conjunction with the season.”
“Please encourage anyone affected by the plant closing to contact my office. We can help guide them through the unemployment process and be a resource as they navigate this difficult time,” Cavitt said. “People are waking up to difficult news this morning. Please know that you do not have to go through this alone. There is a whole community behind you. We’re ready to help.”

“People harvest deer year-round. Whether it’s farmers with nuisance licenses or a surplus of deer during hunting season, there are always extra deer that need to be processed,” said Cavitt, R-Cheboygan. “MSAH gets the deer to processors and ensures all resulting venison gets to the dinner tables of people who need it.”
