From time to time members of the public perform acts of public service or make donations to the Kalkaska Sheriff Office. The Sheriff Office wishes to acknowledge these acts and extend heart felt thanks. Details of such instances will be displayed below.



It is with great pride that I, on behalf of the sheriff’s office extend sincere gratitude to the Kalkaska community, federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, fire departments and service providers for the assistance and support given us after our recent loss of Sheriff Abe DeVol.

Whether your support came in the form of providing direct assistance to our agency, organizing funeral arrangements and the luncheon, providing food, the many other associated responsibilities, or by showing your support at the funeral or along the funeral procession route, my entire staff thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

Your kindness, generosity and support mean more than words can express.

Undersheriff Pat Whiteford
