ANN ARBOR TOWNSHIP, MI – When a Washtenaw Community College student was robbed on campus by an armed suspect back in February, officials with the college said it took 23 minutes for local law enforcement to arrive at the scene.

… In the course of its research, WCC found that several other large community colleges in the state already have sworn officers or armed security on-site including Delta College, Grand Rapids Community College, Kalamazoo Valley Community College, Lansing Community College, Macomb Community College, Oakland Community College, Schoolcraft College and Wayne County Community College.
