The Albion Department of Public Safety (ADPS) will pay to send you to both the police academy and the fire academy.  The department offers excellent benefits and requires employees to contribute less toward those benefits than most police and fire departments.  This means higher take-home pay for you.  We invite you to consider joining our agency and see what we have to offer!
