Keystone lecture focuses on county jail capacity

Feb. 23, 2005

KALAMAZOO--The need for expanded jail capacity in Kalamazoo County and the solutions under discussion will be discussed when Sheriff Michael J. Anderson speaks at Western Michigan University Friday, Feb. 25, as part of the Keystone Community Bank Breakfast Speaker Series.

Anderson will speak at 7:30 a.m. in the Dean's Conference Room, Room 2150 of Schneider Hall, home of the Haworth College of Business.

A WMU alumnus with a master's degree in public administration, Anderson joined the department in November 1986 as undersheriff, with the responsibility for daily administration and management of law enforcement, jail and staff support operations. He has been Kalamazoo County sheriff since 2003, and he oversees a department that administers the county jail and provides basic and advanced law enforcement services to approximately 88,000 citizens.

The Keystone series, now in its fourth year, is sponsored by the Kalamazoo-based Keystone Community Bank. The presentations offer community members, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and other guests an opportunity to discuss important business issues. The free event is open to the public. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (269) 387-5050. Parking is available in the nearby Fetzer Center lot.
