Trooper Youth Week gives students a taste of law enforcement training

SEA GIRT — Trooper Youth Week, five days of grueling training for high school juniors, isn’t for the faint of heart.

Ask any of the 138 young men and women who opted to forego cell phones and other electronics to instead choose to experience life as a recruit for the New Jersey State Police.

For those who graduated the 104th class of Trooper Youth Week on Friday, the long hours, taxing drills and classroom lectures was worth giving up a sliver of their summer – and their favorite pastimes.

“It’s a life-changing thing and I’m glad I’ve chosen to do it,” said Dyon Womack, 17, of Howell.

Cop Camp shows kids local law enforcement

Shelby Police officers and community kids got to know each other a little better this week.

For more than 10 years,  Shelby had held two free, week-long summer camps for the community’s youth to see the people behind the badge. The department’s first week of Cop Camp hosted 20 children from the Shelby area.

Children learned about crime scene investigation, being a patrol officer and K-9s used by officers. They also got to participate in different field trips throughout the week.

The first week is dedicated to children 8- to 10-years-old. The second week for children 11- to 13-years-old starts Monday.

The genetic fingerprint and what it can do for law enforcement

Of all the different investigating techniques and technology available to law enforcement, I have always found DNA analysis to be the most interesting. There are more than 7 billion people in the world today, and each one has a unique strand of DNA that makes them who they are.

Not long ago we were notified that a DNA match was found from evidence that investigators had collected at a burglary out in the county. When we get a match like this, our next step is to collect a sample from the suspect of the possible match so the lab can confirm it is indeed the DNA of that person.

The ability to collect and analyze DNA has come a long way over the years, and for the law enforcement world it has helped dramatically when it comes to identifying evidence relating to victims and suspects. The process for getting DNA results from

Campers learn facets of law enforcement

In a second-floor classroom of Seminary Hall at Northeastern State University, a few inquisitive minds are considering a life of crime fighting.

During a summer youth camp offered through NSU Continuing Education, the kids are dipping their toes into a multi-faceted pool of careers that includes police departments, sheriffs’ offices, forensics, district attorneys’ offices, corrections, probations and parole, ethics activity and victims advocacy.

All are topics to be discussed with experts during the Criminal Justice Camp, running through Thursday.

“Last year, we did a week-long mock crime,” said Haley Stocks, camp director. “This year, we’ve broken it down so that each day they have a crime to solve. Instead of one big story, they now get exposure to multiple miniature scenarios.”

The Criminal Justice Camp has six campers this year. They are high school students, and some are traveling a distance this week to attend.

“This has been a lot of fun, and my favorite

This is what it’s like to be a woman in law enforcement – Belleville News

Abby Henn said she can still picture every crime scene she’s investigated with Illinois State Police.

But even dealing with that isn’t as difficult as being a woman working in the criminal justice system can sometimes be.

“We can’t unsee what we’ve seen,” she said. “… Those things are somewhat of a challenge. But I would say what has been an even bigger challenge for me is probably being a female in law enforcement.”

Henn said she’s felt ostracized by the men with whom she’s worked.

“You don’t get invited out on the fishing trips and to do the going out for drinks that all the guys do,” she said. And when she was promoted, it got harder.

“I didn’t have access to a room, and I was told, ‘Well, the janitor doesn’t even have access to this office.’ I’m like, ‘I’m not a janitor. I’m a crime scene investigator …’” Henn said.
