“I think one of the main benefits it shows them all the different specialties we have,” State Trooper Danielle Elwood said.

Leaders at SJC have stated that the school, which has different majors connected to law enforcement, plan to hold the camp again.

"This experience is highly beneficial for anyone considering a career in law enforcement, because it helps students recognize ways law enforcement officials are able to make a difference in the community,” Elwood sad. “It shows anybody looking at a life in law enforcement, how to help people and make a difference in the community, more than just stopping people and giving tickets. It shows them the impact we can have as troopers.”
