    Kalamazoo, MI: On Tuesday, December 16, 2014, at approximately 08:00 a.m., Kalamazoo Public Safety Officer Ariana Gasca observed a female driving down Florence Street, operating a golf cart.  Officer Gasca thought this was an odd sight at eight in the morning, so she pulled up to the female and asked if she would talk with her.  The 23 year old Kalamazoo resident pulled the cart over to speak with Officer Gasca.

     

    During the conversation, Officer Gasca was told a friend had given her the golf cart to drive.  Officer Gasca located items on the golf cart, showing possible ownership to a local apartment complex.  Dispatch quickly confirmed the golf cart had been recently stolen.  The female was arrested and brought down to Kalamazoo Public Safety Headquarters for the booking process.  Officer Gasca learned, the more time she had spent with this female, that she was possibly intoxicated as well.  A series of sobriety tests were given.

     

    The 23 year old female was arrested on numerous charges to include; Unlawfully Driving Away a Vehicle, Operating While Intoxicated, Driving on a Suspended License, Obstruction by Disguise, and two valid warrants for her arrest.

     

     

    Anyone who may have information regarding this investigation is asked to call Kalamazoo Public Safety at 337-8994 or Silent Observer at 343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.

    COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP AWARD

     

    Kalamazoo, MI:  Kalamazoo Public Safety was recently awarded the Community Partnership Award for outstanding community relations, customer oriented service, and non-traditional engaged problem solving by the Vistelar Group.

     

    Kalamazoo Public Safety Officers have always held, in high regard, the value of providing strong, efficient, traditional police and fire services.  The pillars of the public safety profession encompass crime reduction, fire suppression, critical medical response, and providing a safe environment wherein citizens and businesses may thrive.  Over the past year, Kalamazoo Public Safety Officers have placed an additional emphasis on non-conventional police/citizen interaction that focuses on building faith and trust between officers and the community that we serve. 

     

    Within these new initiatives, officers have embraced the goal of making personal contact at each household and business to speak with as many citizens as possible.  Officers strive to solicit feedback, hear concerns, and most importantly put a face with the badge to foster and enhance lasting and trusting personal relationships.   Officers will continue to conduct these personal contacts in an effort to narrow the divide that often exists today between public safety professionals and some members of the communities they serve.  

     

    In November of 2014 the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety received the Community Partnership Award from the Vistelar Group, located in Milwaukee Wisconsin.  The Vistelar Group is a global speaking and training organization focused on addressing the spectrum of human conflict.  Vistelar Group clients include all organizations where human conflict has a high prevalence, within business, healthcare, education, public safety and government.  Kalamazoo Public Safety was recognized due to their initiatives resulting in excellence in community relations and conflict resolution.

     

     “We are honored to receive this prestigious award.  We are proud of the work that the members of our department do, particularly the effort that they put forth to foster and build personal relationships with the citizens who we serve.  We’ll continue to work diligently, in partnership with the community, to keep Kalamazoo safe and vibrant,” said Captain Jim Mallery.
