KALAMAZOO, Mich. — A Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety officer was recently arrested on fraud charges.

Catrice Lockett was taken into custody in Georgia.

KDPS released a statement to FOX 17 on the arrest, saying they were aware of the supposed incident.

"Once the investigating agency notified us of the allegations, we placed PSO Lockett on administrative leave. We've been investigating the incident," said a spokesperson for KDPS.

FOX17 also reached out to the sheriff's office in Douglas County, Georgia, where Lockett was allegedly arrested. The sheriff confirmed that Lockett was arrested last week and has since bonded out.

Before joining KDPS in 2016, Lockett worked for the Grand Valley State University Department of Public Safety and the Muskegon Heights Police Department. She was also a patrol officer and a school resource officer.
