Class teachers coordinated the information exchange session to provide an opportunity for the students to learn about their top three fields of interest in the law enforcement profession from experts in the field. Members from the Criminal Investigations and Organized Crime Divisions spoke with the students about their job responsibilities and career opportunities.
