Our Public Safety Department is comprised of men and women who are cross-trained as police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, and paramedics. In addition, the department consists of communication dispatchers, clerks, and paid on-call fire personnel. The public safety concept reduces labor costs by consolidating all three disciplines into one building. Each sworn officer must be a certified police officer and firefighter under the State of Michigan guidelines.
In order to successfully serve our community, the Public Safety Department is broken down into several divisions, such as Criminal Investigations, Traffic, Records, and a school liaison officer. The officers who are assigned to these divisions receive specialized training.
Our mission is to service the needs of the public in the most professional and efficient manner. We strive to better ourselves each day by receiving community input and interacting with our businesses, churches, and schools. Feedback is vital in order to maintain a level of trust, commitment, and confidence between our citizens and officers.
