In December 1877 twenty-four county sheriffs met in Lansing and formed the Michigan State Sheriffs Association--committed to devising ways and means for assisting each other in the detention, arrest and conviction of criminals. In 1893 the group joined other law enforcement officials and formed the Michigan Association of Police, Sheriffs and Prosecuting Attorneys. In 1931 the sheriffs incorporated independently as the Michigan Sheriffs' Association.
