First and foremost, the Kalamazoo County Jail has been around since 1845. Since the first day of operation at the Kalamazoo County Jail, the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department was the agency involved in managing and overseeing the daily operation.

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department was first established around the late 1700s and was in the same location until they built the new sheriff’s department and included the Kalamazoo County Jail.

The Kalamazoo County Jail was in constant operation from the time it was built in 1845 to 1971. The Kalamazoo County Jail closed its doors until the mid-1980s.
