Allegan County Mounted Division

The Allegan County Sheriffs Department-Mounted Division is currently on display in our display room. Come in and see pictures, trophies and other awards provided by the Mounted Division.

The Mounted Division was started in 1972 and has been used for many different reasons ranging from corralling loose livestock to providing security for big events within Allegan County. The division is ran strictly on volunteers; which currently consists of 20 men and woman, who provide their own horse, transportation for their horse, their own uniform and firearm. Each volunteer is trained in search and rescue, use of force and are also a skilled horseman. In order to maintain these skills, each volunteer goes through a 14 week training academy.

You may see them patrolling through your town. Don't be afraid to wave and say hi.
