SCC hosting law enforcement fair


Keeping the long arm of the law strong in Sampson County is a priority for citizens who live in this community. Sampson Community College is looking to do just that by hosting a Criminal Justice Career Fair this Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 5-7 p.m. in SCC’s Warren Student Center.

More than 35 agencies have been invited to the event so far and several are already on tap to appear at the event. These include the Clinton Police Department, Dunn Police Department, Fuquay Varina Police, Department, Goldsboro Police Department, North Carolina State Highway Patrol, Raleigh Police Department, RDU Airport Authority Police, Smithfield Police Department, Regional Juvenile Center and Integrity Investigations.

This event is open to any current criminal justice and BLET student or graduate, as well as those interested in pursuing their education in criminal justice or law enforcement.

Basic Law Enforcement Training, a popular program at the college, will be featured at the fair. SCC currently has a daytime class scheduled to begin on January 19th which is scheduled to complete next June. Those classes run Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. with various evening segments for firearms and driving. A BLET pre-orientation interest session is scheduled for Dec. 14 at SCC where prospective students will receive an overview of BLET’s requirements. Enrollment packets are available at the career fair.

Sampson Community College has offered Basic Law Enforcement Training since 1985 (per the records located) and the Criminal Justice Technology degree since 1977. Attendees will also receive information about SCC’s Criminal Justice Technology degree .

Any agency looking to appear at the Criminal Justice Career Fair or those interested in a law enforcement career should contact 910-592-8081, ext. 7009.
