Mounted Division

Berrien County Youth Fair - Mounted Division

The Berrien County Mounted Division is an all-volunteer unit of the Sheriff’s Office, consisting of sworn deputies who serve the people of Berrien County. The Mounted Division assists the Sheriff’s Office with the preservation of law and order, community events, and emergency operations such as search and rescue. The members enjoy team building trails rides, rodeo style camp outs, and the week of the Berrien County Youth Fair spent together.

The Mounted Division gives back to the community each year with the donation driven “Coats Boots & Hats” program which ensures students in need in the Berrien County school districts are outfitted for winter.

The Berrien County Mounted Division is a member of the Michigan Sheriff's Mounted Association and participates in events and competitions including pistol shooting, rodeo style horse competitions, and trail rides.
