On February 2nd, College of Liberal Arts students from the Criminal Justice, English, History, Political Science, Psychology and Neuroscience and Sociology departments gathered in Northeast Philadelphia for a half-day workshop at one of the regional offices of the PA Attorney General.
Students had the opportunity to hear presentations from and network with various attorneys, special agents and police officers in Pennsylvania's top law enforcement office. Some of the speakers that presented were from the offices of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms), and local police forces.
Supervisor Agent Bob Weber, with his K-9 dog Mizu, gave a fun and interaction presentation, while police officers from West Chester University Police Department and Radnor Police Department gave a demonstration on police drone technology. Special Agent Siddiq Kamars spoke one-on-one with students, and they also had the opportunity to hear from lawyers with the Attorney General's office.
Students were engaged and curious and enjoyed the experience of learning from so many different arms of the law! A special thank you to the Attorney General's Office and all of the participants for allowing us in your space and for sharing such a rich amount of invaluable information and knowledge.
