HESPERIA – The Hesperia Village Council has offered the police chief position to Corrections Division Lt. Louis Herremans of the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office.

The council voted Monday, April 1, to offer the position to Herremans, and a salary package will be finalized during the next council meeting Monday, April 8, said Village President Mike Farber.

Herremans was among three candidates interviewed, including Hesperia Police Officer Fred Hull and Lapeer County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jeremy Herfert. The personnel committee recommended that the village hire Herremans, Farber said.

If Herremans accepts the offer, he will replace former Police Chief Joe Fitzgerald who served from July to December of 2018. Fitzgerald resigned to take an employment opportunity in the Upper Peninsula.

Hull, who was appointed interim chief, has been on the Hesperia department for four years.

Herremans was appointed lieutenant of the corrections division in 2017 and began his career at the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office in September of 1989. He has 34 years of law enforcement experience.
