LAW ENFORCEMENT RODEO

Students at the Cumberland County Technical Education Center (CCTEC) got to enjoy the nice weather and explore the world of law enforcement.

Students, members of local law enforcement and city officials all came out for the fourth annual Law Enforcement Rodeo.

Cumberland County Prosecutor, Jennifer Webb-McRae, served as the guest speaker and spoke to CCTEC’s law enforcement students about their futures.

The event is held to bring police and the community together by creating a better understanding of what an officer's job entails.

"Not only is it important for the law enforcement community here, it's important for our students and the community to see the type of job that law enforcement does on a daily basis," says Andre Lopez, director of school safety at CCTEC.

Students got to see demonstrations from a variety of participants, including the New Jersey State Police Team’s Units and Aviation Units, the Atlantic County Police Canine Academy, and the Vineland Policy Canine Unit.

The event concluded with a picnic lunch for students and, hopefully, their future co-workers.
