Rasmussen College Takes Part in Minnesota State Police Explorer's Academy

Rasmussen College had the privilege to participate in the Minnesota State Law Enforcement Explorer’s Academy March 31, 2012. The purpose of this academy is to provide law enforcement explorers, whose ages range between 14-20, the chance to participate in a variety of scenarios that will prepare them for the state competition held in Rochester, Minnesota on April 19-21, 2012. Throughout the weekend, more than 30 law enforcement Explorer posts participated in events such as crime scene investigation, white collar crimes, search and arrest, traffic stops, bomb scene search, and much more.

School of Justice Studies Program Coordinator Jason Weber had the privilege of being asked to participate in the employment interview scenario for the second year in a row. Over the course of the weekend, Weber conducted interviews working together with Saint Paul Police Department Senior Commander Joe Neuberger and Shakopee Police Department Chief Jeff Tate.

For the employment interview scenario, students were provided with information on a fictitious city, and in teams of three or four they worked together on the interview process. The academy provided interviewees feedback and comments on how they could improve their skills so that they can take the experience learned and use it in the state competition.

In addition, Weber met with three Explorers to discuss the Rasmussen College law enforcement program. Weber also had the chance to talk with many law enforcement officers regarding the Rasmussen College American Heroes Grant, which is a Rasmussen College program open to all active-duty public servants to support thier efforts in furthering thier education. Overall Weber says he truly enjoyed being a part of such an important event for the Minnesota Law Enforcement Explorers.
