Peace Officer and Criminal Justice Expo coming to FDLTCC

Are you interested in a career in the criminal justice field? The Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC) will host their 2024 Peace Officer and Criminal Justice Expo on Wednesday, April 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The event will be held in the Lester Jack Briggs Cultural Center. Organizers say attendees will have the opportunity to meet with a record number of representatives from a variety of local, county, state, and federal agencies.

An expo like this helps the public learn about job openings and the communities that the different agencies serve. The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.

“Today, there is an unprecedented staffing shortage of professionally trained peace officers in cities, counties, and in state agencies here in Minnesota and throughout the United States. The demand for highly trained and skilled applicants is at a peak,” Mike Tusken, FDLTCC Law Enforcement Program Coordinator said in a release. “The students who graduate from FDLTCC are held in high esteem by agencies in the local area and throughout the state and nation. We are proud to have students employed in agencies across the United States in city, county, state and federal agencies representing law enforcement and criminal justice careers.”

According to the release, the Peace Officer and Criminal Justice Expo is designed to provide information about the wide range of career opportunities available. There will be more than 45 prospective employers representing police, sheriff, conservation officers, and the state patrol at the event answering questions.

Area students and the general public with an interest in careers in criminal justice and policing should attend.
