To preserve public order, to support the constitution of the State of Michigan, and to enforce all laws and ordinances of our state, county, and townships.

This Mission can only be accomplished by effective performance of police presence 24 hours each day throughout the county. Effective performance includes a response to all requests for service and assistance and also thorough investigations of all criminal and traffic offenses. Performance is also reflected in our ability to offer a correctional environment that meets the needs of the criminal justice system and law enforcement agencies within the county. Two of the most important responsibilities accompanying this office have remained unchanged. Those are the enforcement of the law and the maintenance of a correctional facility.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office continues to keep its public aware of issues pertaining to public safety by effective uses of the news media, crime prevention programs, and by being involved in the communities we represent. The men and women of this office have remained dedicated in the operations and delivery of professional law enforcement services to the citizens of our county and its visitors.

The members of the Sheriff's Office value the opportunity to serve the residents and visitors of Ottawa County.
