Police & E-Unit
Emergency medical response (E-unit) and police services are provided to Holland Township citizens and businesses on a contract basis by the Ottawa County Sheriff Department. E-unit services were initiated in 1975 by an extra voted one-half mill as a means to supplement the basic road patrol service provided by the Ottawa County Sheriff Department on a countywide basis. During the 1980’s, the extra voted millage was increased to one mill to accommodate the increasing calls for illness/injury paramedic services and to add proactive community policing services.
E-unit and community policing services include the following:
Emergency medical response (E-unit), including 3 vehicles and 8 paramedics, funded on a 60%/40% shared basis between Holland and Park Townships.
4 community policing officers, providing ordinance enforcement, neighborhood crime prevention, traffic control and public assistance services.
Other law enforcement services, including a portion of a full time community involvement traffic enforcement officer, criminal investigations, and increased summer season law enforcement support.
2 working supervisory sergeants (also shared with Park Township).
