MSA Star Kalkaska Sheriff Office
Community Police


Photo Pending

Deputy: Brian Peacock
Patrol Area: Bear Lake, Blue Lake & Kalkaska Townships

Deputy: Christie Hoenicke
Patrol Area: Clearwater, Boardman & Kalkaska Townships

Community policing deputies are a visible presence in the communities they serve. The goal of this position is to work directly with the local elected officials, businesses and community leaders to identify specific areas of need and to develop strategies to address the needs.

In addition to carrying criminal investigation caseloads as part of their obligation to the community they serve, deputies assigned to Community Policing actively participate in community events; as well as, conduct crime prevention programs in their assigned areas.

Initially, funding for the Community Policing initiative was provided by federal grants such as the Department of Justice "COPS" grant. Unfortunately, this funding no longer exists and we now depend on the individual local communities to subsidize the funding of these positions.
