Sheriff Notes November 28 2023


  • With the first snow of the year, we were busy with multiple crashes. Law Enforcement goes through this every year, and this year was not different. Just a reminder in bad weather, give yourself extra time for travel, check your tire tread, have your emergency kit in your vehicle, etc.
  • Corrections staff done their yearly update and training for defensive tactics, legal updates(which is covered throughout the year when they come out), restraints, oc spray, tazer, etc.
  • Our animal control shelter currently has 12 dogs in it. With that said, just over half are up for adoption right now. We currently have no cats or other animals there. We always welcome the public to stop by and talk with the staff there as well as look for their next pet for the animals forever home.
  • Uniform Response had a pursuit in Geneva Township with a vehicle that was in violation of multiple infractions. The vehicle did crash in the ditch with the driver bailing out immediately. Our canine tracked the subject down and he was put into custody. The driver was charged with multiple offenses for the incident.
  • Uniform Response handled several incidents related to trespassing from hunters. Just a reminder to the public that there is no legal right to trespass when retrieving a deer without permission. There is no legal right to hunt a property line and shoot on to another person’s property. Remember to register your deer upon success with the DNR.
  • Uniform Response had a pursuit starting in the Village of Paw Paw ending at Armstrong Corners (M40hwy & M43hwy). The initial stop was being made due to a BOL for the vehicle driving poorly and at times in the oncoming traffic lane. Deputies were able to deploy stop sticks and flatten both front tires just prior to Armstrong Corner. The female driver attempted to run on foot abandoning her 4-year-old child in the vehicle, however, she fell after a short foot chase and was taken into custody. During the pursuit of the vehicle, the deputies did not know there was a child in the vehicle. The child was taken back to our office and turned over to a relative. The driver was charged with multiple offenses. The driver also had 6 warrants for her arrest out of Indiana and 1 out of Novi.  In all, the driver in now facing 13 charges.
  • Uniform Response to a larceny compliant in Bloomingdale Township of a stolen ATV. It was a 2017 570 Polaris Sportsman, blue in color with a silver snowplow. Anyone with any information on it is asked to call our office.
  • Emergency Management Director has been working with county staff throughout the county for upcoming fire drills in county buildings.
