Students in the Homeland Security Law Enforcement class took a trip to the Caroline County 911 Call Center to explore several career paths within Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
The tour through the center was led by Stephen T. Hurlock, Division Chief. During the visit, several 911 calls were received, enabling students to witness the entire process from initial call to response time, tracking the responders on screen. Students also met Caroline County Emergency Planner Jeff Ludwig who led a discussion on the National Incident Management System. Bill Hildebrand, Maryland Emergency Management Agency’s Regional Liaison for the Eastern Shore, was also on hand. Students were led through the history of the National Incident Management System and how this system impacts Caroline County’s preparedness for hurricane season.
Maryland State Police Trooper Garrett Graef spoke to students about the Trooper Explorer Program and the Trooper Cadet Program as well as benefits and opportunities available through the Maryland State Police Department (MSPD).
The Homeland Security Law Enforcement Program is offered through the Caroline Career and Technology Center. The class introduces students to multiple aspects of criminal justice and law enforcement at the local, state, and federal level.
