Unfortunately, our funding for the school liaison position ceased. Kalkaska County Deputies will continue to respond to both Kalkaska and Forest Area Schools whenever necessary.
Deputy Nathaniel Deveneau is the Community Policing Officer for Boardman, Clearwater and Kalkaska Townships. He will also continue to be present at school functions such as athletic events and dances.
The intent of this position is to provide presence and
visibility at each of our seven school buildings in the county via random
patrols and appearances throughout each school day.
The deputy assigned to this position will be tasked with contacting each school to inquire about immediate or future safety concerns. This officer will be expected to respond to emergent complaints while present at the school. In-depth investigations will continue to require a call to Central Dispatch for general complaint assignment.
