It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Criminal Justice Program on the Blaine campus. On Tuesday, May 15, the program advisory committee met. Several professionals and a graduate from the program reviewed the curriculum and provided useful feedback for the criminal justice program.
On Wednesday, May 16, criminal justice students went to Big Lake, where they listened to presentations by the Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office, Criminal Justice Program Chair, Laura Talvitie, and several others present on safety and security. More than 100 people attended this presentation presented by the Seniors and Law Enforcement Council. That afternoon, the students headed to St. Cloud for a tour of the Minnesota Correctional Facility (MCF-St. Cloud). This tour lasted almost three hours and consisted of discussions with a case manager, correctional officer, visitation supervisor, and an employment training program officer. These hands-on experiences for our students are very beneficial,
and the Blaine campus looks forward to doing more in the future!
