Law Enforcement

  • 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
