Branch County road patrol makeover complete

COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - The law enforcement road patrol makeover in Branch County is now in effect, as of Sunday evening, with the Sheriff’s Department last night handing over the 6 pm to 6 am duties seven days a week to the Michigan State Police. The changing of the guard comes in the aftermath of deep budget cuts the county put in effect January 1st, eliminating half of the 16 Sheriff’s Department road officers.

In the meantime, the Michigan State Police Coldwater Post has been growing its ranks this year and had already begun to assist in picking up the slack with the layoffs at the Sheriff’s Department. 16 troopers work out of the Coldwater Post that covers Calhoun and St. Joseph Counties with a total of 36 troopers when you add in the State Police detachments in Marshall and White Pigeon.
