Kalkaska County Sheriff’s Office Swears in New Undersheriff

Kalkaska’s Sheriff Pat Whiteford swore in a new undersheriff Monday.

Harry Shipp is now the department’s second in command.

He has worked 24 years at the Kalkaska Sheriff’s Office and 20 years as a Marine.

Undersheriff Shipp also has experience as a corrections and road patrol officer.

Sheriff Whiteford says he had three individuals who qualified for the job.

He says Shipp was the best fit for undersheriff due to his jail, road and military background.
