Road Patrol Minimize
The Road Patrol Officers are the backbone of any law enforcement group. They are the boots on the ground taking calls on everything from petty larceny to homicide, shoplifting to lost children. These Officers are the guardian angles working every holiday, every weekend, and every night shift to protect and serve the public. When it is 20 degrees below zero and you are in the house sitting by the fireplace the Road Officers are out policing an accident, refereeing a domestic dispute, or getting someone the help they need at their darkest hour. These Officers work for you and have your best interest at heart.

To become a Police Officer in Michigan an individual must complete high school, obtain a college degree in criminal justice, and attend a Police academy that is recognized by the State of Michigan. Once that is completed and you are hired by an agency you will continue your education by spending hundreds of hours attending training classes throughout your career to keep up with the ever changing laws and requirements.

It takes a special person to work in law enforcement and deal with the day to day complaints and issues that confront you. At the end of the day we would not give up our job as a Police Officer for any other occupation. Some days are tougher than others but there is no better feeling in the world than the one you get when you find a lost child or a citizen thanks you for being there in their darkest moment.
