Sixty students from local colleges recently completed a law enforcement program sponsored jointly by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office and the NJ Police Community Affairs Officers Associations.
During the four-week session, students learned what it’s like to work in law enforcement and about careers in the field. They also learned about bias and hate crimes and refined their interviewing and communications skills.
“I want to thank you for putting this program together,” said Ana Pimentel, a criminal justice major at Kean University. “The course was an amazing experience.”
