Sheriff Stan Burchardt would like to remind everyone that the Hillsdale County Sheriff's Department is providing a couple of valuable classes this spring and summer.
HCSD 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.
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
