On Monday, November 12, 2012, Roger Boardman assumed the position of Undersheriff, returning from retirement after 35 years of distinguished service with the Hillsdale County Sheriff's Office. Undersheriff Boardman replaces William Whorley who recently accepted a position as Head of Security with Hillsdale College.
Whorley will continue to serve the Sheriff's Office as a Deputy, assisting Undersheriff Boardman and Sheriff Burchardt on budgeting, grants and other initiatives assigned by the Sheriff. "It has been a pleasure to work with Sheriff Stan Burchardt and the men and women in uniform who serve the residents of Hillsdale County." stated Whorley.
Welcome to the Hillsdale County Sheriff's Office web site! Since becoming the sheriff in January 1997, I have been dedicated to making the Sheriff's Office an organization that secures the safety of each of our residents, guests and visitors. Improved community policing, a Safe School program, a restructured Detective Bureau and K-9 Unit as well as many other services we provide continue to make Hillsdale County a safe community in which to live and work.
Our mission states that we strive "To protect and serve our community by maintaining a high standard of honor and integrity through professional service." As Sheriff of Hillsdale County, I am proud of the accomplishments of the men and women of this department as they continue to risk their lives to protect the members of our community.
Thank you for your continued trust in the Sheriff's Office. I encourage you to become an involved citizen in the communities in which you live and work.
God Bless You,
Sheriff Stan W. Burchardt
