About This Event On April 18, 2011 we all suffered a great loss when Officer Eric Zapata from Kalamazoo Department Public Safety was killed in the line of duty. He dedicated his life to serving the people of Kalamazoo and preserving the safety of our community. To honor Eric and his legacy, the Eric Zapata Memorial Foundation was created. Proceeds for this event will be used to establish a scholarship fund for individuals enrolling in Law Enforcement programs at Kalamazoo Valley Community College and Grand Rapids Community College.
