James Bosscher has been sheriff of Missaukee County for 24 years and is seeking another four-year term in what he said will be his last election.

Bosscher will be on the Aug. 2 primary ballot as a Republican.

“I feel that I still have something to offer Missaukee County as its Sheriff,” Bosscher said. “There are so many changes happening in law enforcement and government in general. To have a successful change, it’s imperative to look back and understand the history of a department, an office, a county, and a community. I feel that I possess that history and can assist in keeping our community safe.”

Bosscher recalls that when he started, the county jail had only 11 beds.

“We have slowly renovated our entire facility to include 40 beds, new 911 dispatch, jail kitchen and administration offices at no cost to the taxpayers by collecting fees from inmates,” he said. “We have gone from 1 full-time road patrol officer to 24-hour law enforcement coverage in the county.”
