Kalamaoo County

Richard C Fuller III

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office was founded in 1830 when Delamore Duncan was named the first Sheriff for a newly organized territory called Kalamazoo County. Kalamazoo County was comprised of few farms, a lot of wooded land and two small towns called Schoolcraft and "Bronson", whose name was changed six years later to Kalamazoo. The population was a few hundred but a decade of growth saw its population quickly rise to seven thousand. In 2015 the population of Kalamazoo County is 251,000 and the county is dotted with many agricultural areas, two main Cities, Kalamazoo and Portage, and several smaller villages.

What is Victim Services?
Victim Services is a group of trained volunteers dedicated to help victims and survivors work through a crisis or crime against them. Our purpose is to assist persons that have experienced trauma.

The unit will be designed to comfort and help victims and survivors at the scene and provide immediate, short term crisis intervention and/or grief support. Members of the unit will serve as a go between for victims and survivors, their families, and scene officials and emergency service providers.
