Michigan State Police launch diversity hiring initiative

We are also happy to share that representation from the Detroit Police Department will also be on hand to discuss their Recruitment & Academy Program. 

 Remember our goal is to provide “Bridges to Employment” …..while some candidates will ready for the opportunities, we know that we will need to provide support to most to “get ready for the opportunities”.    Along with the Black Caucus Foundation interviewing candidates to “on-ramp” into the Bridges to Work Law Enforcement Program, we also will be interviewing for candidates for “on-ramp” into other skilled trade opportunities with our various program partners.
