The Department of Public Safety's mission is to enhance quality of life for everyone in our city by providing professional police, fire, and EMS service in partnership with the community. Members of the public are invited to review policies, contracts, training details, and other information about its operations on this web page. Updates will be posted as needed as KDPS continues to refine and improve its service to Kalamazoo. It is our goal to provide as much information as possible without affecting our ability to serve the people of Kalamazoo.
