Kirtland Public Safety Officers are certified officers through the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards. In addition personnel are trained in a vast array of training programs such as firearms, interviewing, crisis response and less than lethal force to name a few. The Kirtland Public Safety officer’s jurisdiction covers anywhere on either campus, plus adjoining public roadways.
OK2SAY is a program designed to empower Michigan students, parents, school personnel, community mental health service programs, and law enforcement to share and respond to student safety threats.
You probably won’t realize the Public Safety officers are all around Kirtland — until you need one.
If you ever lock yourself out of your car, lose something or find yourself needing an escort, we will be there to serve and protect you.
