Peter Kalmuk served eight years in the U.S. Army Reserve as a Military Police Officer Sergeant. He was deployed to Iraq for 12 months and has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Argosy University.

“It seems common practice now for law enforcement departments to charge a fee for just the application. This career field is now an expensive investment just to apply for,” he said.

Kalmuk selected College of DuPage because of its class offerings. He is confident that the training he is receiving will lead to a career.

“I started in both welding and manufacturing. They are a ‘trade’ and knowing a trade is always helpful. There are always available positions in these fields,” he said. “The instructors at COD have extensive experience in the fields that allow for accurate examples of real-world applications.”
