“Our goal is to provide our public safety command staff with consistent and professional training as it relates to their leadership in delivering quality service to our residents. The Eastern Michigan School of Staff and Command is one of the preeminent programs in the country that focuses on the executive level training and development,” said Everette Robbins, director of public safety. “Professional Policing within any public safety organization starts at the top with those in positions of leadership. If we hold ourselves accountable as leaders and train accordingly, it truly funnels down to the great men and women we have that serve our community.”

Over a dozen members from Huron Public Safety have graduated from the specialized school.
