Through a close partnership with the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety (KDPS) and Kalamazoo Valley Community College (KVCC), students will explore the skills and ethics necessary to be a successful police or fire academy recruit. Taught by a KDPS safety officer, students will study topics such as criminal law, patrol procedures, fire ground operations, safety and first aid, ethics, defensive tactics, crime scene investigation and communication skills.
"The Law Enforcement EFE program made me realize how fun and interesting it is to be a police officer. It also showed me that the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety is a great department, full of great people. This program put me on the path to where I am today, a KDPS Public Safety Officer." — Devin Palmer, former EFE Law Enforcement student
