More Information on Kent County

Home to the city of Grand Rapids, Kent County has long been the economic center of West Michigan. When they organized it in 1836, legislators named the county after New York legal scholar James Kent. According to reports, the state was rewarding Kent for having represented Michigan in its legal battle with Ohio over the Toledo Strip. The new county was delineated from the existing  Kalamazoo County.

Evidence of burial grounds suggest that the ancient Hopewell Indians were long-time inhabitants of the region. By the early 19th century, the river valley in the area served as an important fur trading center.  Shortly after Kent county was organized, Grand Rapids was incorporated as a village.  Capitalists viewed the nearby Grand River (the largest in the state) as a favorable location to build sawmills.  Accordingly, area settlers became heavily engaged in logging and then in furniture manufacturing (as well as agriculture).

Today, Kent County is home to the nationally-known Steelcase Corporation, Amway, and Frederik Meijer Gardens.  Having more than 600,000 residents, the county continues to experience healthy economic and population growth. Indeed, Grand Rapids has gained national attention in recent years for being one of the nation’s most livable cities.

Most of the crime in Kent County occurs within the city limits of Grand Rapids, and it varies, mainly consisting of vandalism, drunk driving, arson, assault, theft, and drug-related crimes. The county’s police resources and courts are busier and more taxed than those of surrounding counties which makes an arrest a longer process. If you need professional help navigating Kent County’s bureaucracy, Christine at Christine’s Bail Bonds is always there to call upon.
