Grand Valley graduate Brendan Estlick was sworn in early December as a new public safety officer for the Grand Valley Police Department.

“I was born and raised in West Michigan, so this has always been my home,” Estlick said. “This is a job where I can go out and make a tangible difference in my community.”

After attending Muskegon Community College, Estlick transferred to Grand Valley to complete a bachelor's degree in criminal justice.

“I love Grand Valley’s culture and I love the environment here,” Estlick said.

In the future, Estlick said he may be interested in participating in GVPD’s training to be a field training officer.

“I didn’t really know what I wanted to do until I took a criminal justice class and discovered it was where I wanted to be,” Estlick said. “This is an honest job that I feel I can do happily.”

In his free time, Estlick enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing video games, and working on his Mustang with his brother.

“I was super shy growing up, so this job really challenges me to be a more well-rounded and socially involved person,” Estlick said.
