Corey started his legal career in 1991 by attending the Delta College Police Academy and went on to become a full-time police officer within the suburbs of metro Detroit. He continued his legal career in law enforcement and has been a certified law enforcement officer for over 30 years. Corey’s achievements and commitment to law enforcement earned him the role of Chief of Police, which is the role he has been serving in his most recent years as an officer.
