Community Outreach

Big Rapids Cadet Program


The Big Rapids Cadet program, although still being developed, seeks to engage the community youth and college students as valued members of the Police Division. We currently have service officers that work as paid employees and will be evolving their role in the department to allow them more responsibility and training in assisting the Police Division. We believe it is important to help develop students by giving them the opportunity to be a part of our department and gain experience for the future.

The Big Rapids Department of Public Safety thanks you for your interest in the Cadet program. Please check back later to this page for further updates on the Cadet Program
