“It was cool to be here,” sophomore NJROTC student Darius Brown said. “I wanted to be a police officer or work for the government, but this has given me more ideas and some choices about what I could do. It’s showed me that there are more options out there that I could pursue.”
 
More than 20 organizations hosted a table at the second annual PSLA at Fowler Law Enforcement Day, including the Onondaga County Probation Department, the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office, the Syracuse Fire Department, the U.S. Border Patrol and more. Staff from the Onondaga County 911 Center said it was a good opportunity to inform students of the many career opportunities that are open to them in the field of law enforcement.
 
“A lot of the students have expressed interest in what we do as first responders,” Supervisor of Dispatch Operation Regina Morris explained. “I think it opened their eyes to the job—they can see it as another path for them, as you don’t need a college degree to do this work. And I don’t think they realized what a link we are in the community!”
 
Thank you to all of the community organizations who took part!
