The Dexter Area Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1992 and is the economic promotions arm for the Village of Dexter…More and surrounding townships. The chamber hosts its annual golf outing, Christmas Eve Luminary Project and the Downtown Dexter Summer Concert Series.
The chamber's Board of Directors is composed of nine members with an advisory staff from the Village of Dexter, Dexter Village Council, Dexter Historical Society, Dexter Schools, Dexter Senior Center, Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department and the Dexter Area Fire Department.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department serves the Village of Dexter's law enforcement and public safety…More needs. Since the village does not have its own police department, it has a contract with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department. The Washtenaw County Sheriff's substation is located in the same building as the Dexter Area Fire Department, and it serves the village and surrounding townships.
There are nine deputies, including one school liaison; four deputies patrolling the three municipalities; "COPS" (community oriented police) working in conjunction with the individual municipalities on special problems, crime prevention and other local law enforcement activities; and one sergeant.
