Stratford Criminal Justice students were invited by Williamson County Career Technical Education Criminal Justice to attend this unique “real world” opportunity to witness local, county and state law enforcement in various action filled exercises.
For example, the K-9 Officers from the Franklin Police Department conducted a felony car stop that resulted in K-9 “BOLO” removing a person from the back seat of the vehicle that vigorously refused to exit.
Students watched as the Mounted Patrol Officer utilized his horse to stop a physical altercation between two men. Many of the students were surprised when the SWAT Team used a “Flashbang” to demonstrate its use in a tactical hostage operation. Students also received training in ethics, integrity, and leadership.
The final demonstration resulted in the students exiting the building and looking up as a helicopter from the Tennessee Highway Patrol Aviation Unit landed in parking lot. Thanks to Williamson County Schools, all attending students enjoyed pizza and desert. A great day for all!
