trolled substances like the po-
tent painkiller Percodan,
through the collusion of dis-
honest doctors and pharma-
cists. It was one of the first
successful prosecutions of
health care professionals in
the nation and it resulted in
over 20 convictions. "It was a
good one for the government,"
Shere says.
He believes that illegal
drugs are "the worst criminal
and social problem in this
area." He promises that "re-
gardless of who sits in this
office as U.S. attorney, drug
prosecutions will be made a
top priority."
Detroit is the core city for
the Great Lakes Task Force,
which conducts investigations
of illegal drug operations in
five states: Michigan, Ohio,
Kentucky, West Virginia and
Pennsylvania. The Task
Force, which calls upon the
combined resources of the
Drug Enforcement Agency,
the Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation, the Internal Revenue
Service and U.S. Customs, is
administered by the U.S. at-
torney. Oakland County Pro-

secutor L. Brooks Patterson
has called that job "the most
powerful law enforcement
position in Michigan."
In addition to this responsi-
bility, the U.S. attorney in De-
troit must decide who gets in-
vestigated and who doesn't in
the 34 Michigan counties
under his jurisdiction. He also
supervises a staff of 54 attor-
neys operating in the Detroit
office and its two branches in
Bay City and Flint.
Shere, 45, lives in West
Bloomfield. His wife, the
former Margaret Goodman, is
also a native Detroiter. She is
currently an intern in the oc-
cupational therapy program
at Sinai Hospital. The Sheres
have two sons, Jeremy, 13 and
Daniel, 10. Shere says they're
his hobby. "Our lives are
wrapped around our kids."
But Shere also finds time to
fulfill a number of community
obligations. He is on the board
of directors of Hillel Day
School, (which his sons
attend), and the Jewish Asso-
ciation for Retarded Citizens.
The Sheres have been to Israel
several times, and Shere says,
