OCSD Reserves

Sgt. Eric Westveer oversees the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office marine patrol.

Part of an Ottawa County police reserve program that evolved after the historical Hudsonville tornado destruction in 1956 was dissolved in August.

Ottawa County Sheriff Steve Kempker said the move was not a “defunding” in reaction to the George Floyd killing by a police officer, but that incident did contribute to the decision.
