On August 14, 2021 Deputy Ryan J. Proxmire was shot while pursuing an armed and dangerous felon, Deputy Proxmire passed away the following day.
On behalf of the Proxmire family along with the women and men of the Sheriff’s Office, we wish to express our sincere thanks for the emotional, financial, and logistical support we’ve been blessed to receive.
The Proxmire family is surrounded by a community, State and Country that truly cares and they are profoundly thankful.
The women and men of the Sheriff’s Office have been supported by their families, their colleagues, and the community. Your support, cards and notes of sympathy and encouragement are uplifting.
As we mourned the loss of Ryan, local law enforcement agencies along with the Michigan State Police responded to calls for service in Kalamazoo County to ensure the continued safety and security of our residents. Thank you to Team Kalamazoo!
Again, the outpouring of support is overwhelming. Kalamazoo is truly blessed.
