Sampson Community College hosted a Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement job and career fair on Tuesday night in the Warren Center.
Among the agencies in attendance was Clinton Police Department where Cpl. Kenneth Bland introduced their drug dog, Junior. The criminal justice and Basic Law Enforcement Students spent some time learning about what Bland and Junior do for the City of Clinton.
Graduates of BLET were also in attendance and visiting various law enforcement agencies that are currently hiring. For our criminal justice students interested in the other components of our criminal justice system, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety was there to discuss options within the prison system and community corrections.
Sampson Community College is offering another Basic Law Enforcement Training session to begin Jan. 19, 2016. This session will be a day time course that meets Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. with few evenings for driving and the firing range, as well as a few Fridays throughout the term.
