Students Join Police Reserves


After several months of hard work and training, four Vol State Criminal Justice students-Janos Briscoe, Caleb Helson, Derrick Walker and Jacob McCafferty- graduated to become Gallatin Police Reserve officers on Thursday, September 18. They took the police officer oath and had their badges pinned on by family members. Criminal Justice director Kevin Cook explains how it all came about: 

"In spring 2014, students taking CRMJ 1150-Criminal Justice Career Planning had the opportunity to do mock police candidate panel interviews with several police departments/officers in our service area," Cook said. "Several of our Social Science and Education Division faculty, including Dean Foley and Rick Parrent, were panel participants as well. The Gallatin Police Department was one of the partners on the panel. They were very impressed with our students and invited them to apply for the Gallatin Police Reserves."

Congrats to these newest reserves and to the Vol State Criminal Justice program.
