Sheriff Stan Burchardt is pleased to announce the participation of the HCSO in OK2SAY, a new School Safety Initiative signed into state law July 2014 that empowers students, parents, school personnel and concerned citizens to confidentially submit tips to help school officials and law enforcement agencies respond to threats to student safety.
Trained OK2SAY Operators are available via telephone, text, email and mobile apps for anyone to CONFIDENTIALLY report school safety threats or harmful behaviors before they occur. See our School Safety - OK2SAY page for more information and links. HELP US KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE AT SCHOOL!
Sheriff Stan Burchardt would like to thank every one that took advantage of the great training that the Hillsdale County Sheriff's Department staff provides. Only one last class date is available for the Pistol Safety Course for 2014 and that will be held on September 20, 2014.
HCSO continues to provide the very best in Concealed Pistol Classes in Michigan. Our department was one of the first to offer Pistol Safety Classes once the law changed in 2001. Our instructors are the very same instructors that train all of our staff concerning Firearms Safety, tactical use and legal authority for use. We offer a limited number of these classes per year, so check out our 2014 FIREARMS TRAINING SCHEDULE.
Sheriff Burchardt also reminds residents and non-residents of the Boating Safety Classes provided FREE of charge every year. Marine Safety is a priority of the Hillsdale County Sheriff's Department and our deputies instill this theme with enforcement activities and education. Be sure to search available classes in our 2014 BOATING SAFETY SCHEDULE.
