Community Services Bureau

Professional Standards Division


The Kentwood Police Department is an extension of the Kentwood citizens’ desire for a safe and lawful community.  Our involvement in events and organizations outside of the normal “law enforcement” role help us to better serve our community.  Our presence at neighborhood block parties, school events, birthday party drive throughs and area business meetings help us to stay connected to our community and serve them to the best of our ability.

The Community Services Bureau is dedicated to positively impacting the citizens of Kentwood. There are two community officers assigned to specific areas within the City, as well as three school resource officers assigned to  schools throughout the city.   You are encouraged to contact the Community Services Bureau to find out how to participate in various community events throughout the year, as well as share any neighborhood concerns.
