DK Security has proven to be a great stepping stone for a future career in law enforcement.
We are proud to showcase our accomplished alumni and wish them the best as they serve and protect.
Alma Police Department
"In my 3 years with DK Security, I was given
the opportunity to enhance my communication
skills, people skills, situational experience and
overall knowledge. All of which, have helped
me in becoming a Police Officer. Each position
I held with DK came with a unique challenge,
and the company did a great job providing me
a platform to overcome these challenges and
grow from them. I would like to express how
thankful I am to this company and the people
I worked along side. I believe one of the reasons
I made it to where I am today at such a young
age, is because of the positive experience I had
at DK Security."
Border Patrol Agent
"I believe my time at DK gave me my first real glimpse into the world of law enforcement and further convinced me that it was the career I wanted to pursue. Furthermore, it gave me applicable experience in a professional environ- ment further ensuring that I would be able to succeed at the next level. I would advise current CJ students to ensure that this is a career they are willing to be a part of. We live in a society that needs protecting but doesn't always appreciate being protected. It's a dangerous job with little recognition, it's a job that needs passionate and motivated individuals. Get a security job, go on ride-alongs, do research, talk to those in the field, etc. If it's for you, study hard, stay out of trouble, and go make a difference in your community."

Public Safety Officer
City of Kalamazoo
"My time at DK assisted with my career
advancement in law enforcement, particularly
my time as an armed guard. Along with being
in a position of authority, becoming comfortable
handling and carrying a firearm are valuable
assets which can ease the transition into law
enforcement. We live in delicate times that are
growing increasingly critical of officers. As a
result, law enforcement agencies are becoming
more cautious of whom they select. Using DK
is one of many assets you should consider in
order to achieve your career goals."
Denver Sheriff Deputy
"My time at DK led me down my current career
path in law enforcement. I did not go to school
for a criminal justice degree, however working
many areas within DK opened my eyes to the
excitement of helping protect our community.
My advice to current students interested in law
enforcement is to not pursue this career if it is
your sole purpose to boss people around. This is
a customer service based profession and everyone's
mindset needs to be positive and you must WANT
to help others."
Grandville Police Department
"I believe that during my three years at DK the countless
reports that I wrote pertaining to loss prevention helped
prepare me for one of the most important yet least talked about job requirements of being a police officer. I also think that my time at DK furthered my people skills. My advice to prospective students or those striving to become a police officer is to always better yourself and set goals. There might not be your dream job in the CJ field right away when you graduate, but in time you can work towards it. Use DK and all of the opportunities there to form a network and reach your goals."
Public Safety Officer
Rockford Police Department
"I developed basic investigation skills through training
and experience gained at DK. I also learned how to communicate effectively, while wearing a uniform
and taking enforcement action. Without arrest powers,
I had to learn to rely on my communication abilities to
gain voluntary compliance. This helped me to develop
the “gift of gab” that I use every day as a police officer."
Michigan State Police
"DK absolutely helped me advance my career. This was a job that helped me grow towards my goal of eventually being a law enforcement officer. My biggest takeaway was learning to interact with people of different views. As a police officer, you cannot just say that I’m the boss this is how it goes. This opportunity gave me real-world examples when interviewing, and it gave me a solid foundation heading into law enforce- ment. I completed service as an officer with the Michigan State Police, and currently hold a position with a large corporation focusing on credit card fraud."
