Representatives from local police, fire, courts, corrections, and emergency personnel, as well as college and military representatives, interacted with over 160 students from Muskegon, Ottawa, Allegan, and Van Buren Career Tech Centers during the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center’s (MACTC) Criminal Justice Career Day. The event took place Thursday, May 2, 2019, at the MACTC and included a career fair, K9 demonstrations, breakout sessions with agency leaders, and wrapped up with keynote speaker Chief Judge Pro Tempore Maria Ladas-Hoopes from the 60th District Court in Muskegon.

 

“Our goal is to exhibit the wide variety of local, state, and federal police and fire agencies, courts, corrections, military, and collegiate programs available to students interested in the Public Safety disciplines,” said MACTC Criminal Justice Instructor Karen Reynolds.
