• About Law Enforcement

    This unique program features a Kalamazoo Public Safety officer as the instructor and also includes numerous other public safety officers with various backgrounds as guest speakers.

    Law Enforcement I introduces students to the many different careers available within the law enforcement field. The program emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and ethics needed to be a successful police academy recruit. Areas of study include criminal law, patrol procedures, fire ground operations, first aid/CPR/AED training, defensive tactics, crime scene investigation and oral and written communication skills. The program follows police academy standards including uniforms and chain of command.

    Law Enforcement II deepens students’ understanding of criminal procedures and improves their written and oral communication skills. Eligible students will intern with local public safety agencies during second semester, where they will apply the knowledge, skills, and ethics learned to real world situations.

    * Partnered with Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety, these programs are located at the Comstock Education Service Center and local internship sites.
