SHERIFF'S CORNER: Calls for Service, September 2021

Last week wrapped up the 150th anniversary of Lake County. The county was created by the Michigan Legislature in 1840 as Aishcum County, then renamed Lake County in 1843, for its many lakes.

This was three years after Michigan officially became a state and was admitted into the union in 1837. Prior to Michigan becoming a state, Michigan was an organized incorporated territory from 1805 until 1837.

With this edition of the Sheriff's Corner, I provide you with the monthly "calls for service" report. This will provide you with an idea of the prior month's response for public safety services within the county.

(This is gross information, meaning some of these calls may have initiated some other action that is not specifically noted in the report.)
