Michigan Sheriffs' Association 2017 Marine Training Academy for new marine officers will be held May 1-5, 2017 at the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office.

The registration fee per attendee is $150.  This includes all materials, snacks, lunches and dinner on the first 3 nights for those whom choose to partake in the extra class sessions. (This leaves attendees on their own for breakfast and for two dinners.)  This does NOT include housing for the week.  Once registration is complete (click on the link below), payment for registration fees should be mailed to the Ottawa County Sheriff's Offce - 12220 Fillmore St. - West Olive, MI  49460.


Please note: our registration system requires that each attendee have their own, unique email address.  This does not have to be an agency email address, so it can be a personal email. Updates to the agenda and equipment list will be sent to these email addresses.


A group housing block has been reserved at the Holiday Inn Express - 12381 Felch St. - Holland, MI.  Cost is $75 per night. This cost is tax exempt if you provide Holiday Inn with a hard copy of your exemption upon arrival. Rooms can accommodate up to 4 people per room - it is up to the county to determine whether or not they want their attendees to share rooms.  The dates of the block contracted are arrival Sunday, April 30th., departure Friday, May 5th., 2017. If you need a room for the night of May 5, 2017, please let them know, and the rate may be higher. To make a reservation or need more information, please contact the hotel at (616) 738-2800 and reference the "STATE MARINE ACADEMY 2017" block along with arrival date.
