Saint Joseph’s College hosted the second annual Indiana State Trooper Career Camp from July 17-22, allowing high school students to experience police work and learn about career and college opportunities.
The camp gives students the chance to gain hands-on experience while they are in the field. It also allows the students to gain more information about career and college opportunities from experts in the field; The Indiana Troopers Youth Services partners with the Indiana State Trooper Career Camp to make the event realistic for students.
“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.”
