Karin Miofsky’s Policing in America students are regularly interacting face-to-face with impressive guests this semester.
In addition to learning about potential careers in law enforcement through traditional classroom instruction, these Lakeland University criminal justice students have the opportunity to meet and talk to highly successful people in their field of study.
Last month, State Trooper Brian Ashenbrenner, an officer with the Wisconsin State Patrol, visited Lakeland and gave the students an in-depth presentation about the many career opportunities in his organization.
And later that week, Raymond Milbern from the Dallas Police Department, which is actively recruiting nationwide, came to Lakeland and presented about career possibilities in Texas.
“I think it’s valuable for our students to meet these accomplished professionals, and hear from them directly about the many potential careers in law enforcement,” said Miofsky, assistant professor of criminal justice at LU. “It’s a great way to supplement our traditional classroom instruction with real-world opportunities directly from those in the field.”
This month, Tyler Flood of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Plymouth office and Capt. Steve Cobb of the Sheboygan Police Department will visit for presentations about those organizations and the career options they offer.
