ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich.- West Michigan’s Most Wanted recognizes law enforcement across West Michigan going above and beyond in their daily work through our Officer of the Month and Hero of the Week Segments.

This month’s officer is Deputy Joe Knapp of the Allegan County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputy Knapp was nominated by Captain Scott Matice who tells us Knapp started a program more than 10 years ago called ‘Cops for Christmas.’

Throughout the year Knapp holds fundraisers to buy food and presents for needy families in Allegan County.

He then organizes a wrapping party taking the festive presents to those families.

Congratulations to Deputy Knapp!

If you see a member of law enforcement, firefighter, military service member or anyone else you think should be honored as our Hero of the Week shoot us an email
