Community Outreach

Ferris State University Students

The Big Rapids Police Department is committed to providing excellent service to the citizens of Big Rapids and to the many college students that call Big Rapids home.

The Police Department seeks to provide a safe and welcoming community to our FSU student population. If you are a student or parent with questions about the area, life in the City of Big Rapids or concerns please contact us and speak with an officer. We would be more than willing to try to answer the questions you may have.  

We know that moving away from home and having additional responsibilities can be challenging. We are here to assist you as we can and help you be comfortable to call Big Rapids your home away from home. We also hope to see you out enjoying your newly found freedom in our great city.
