The Hillsdale County Sheriff's Office works closely with educators in our county to provide assistance in areas relating to school security, drug prevention, gun safety, strangers on school property, bicycle and pedestrian safety and many other services relating to school age children.
We have joined in a partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to highlight these issues within our homes and community. We feel that early detection and prevention starts with the safety programs such as Eddie Eagle GunSafe, Stranger Danger and Internet Safety Programs that we offer to our community schools.
