High School High Tech and RAMP students from Portal High School participated in a tour at The Statesboro-Bulloch Law Enforcement Training Facility. This tour was hosted by Sheriff Noel Brown and staff of the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office. Students interested in a career in law enforcement, or a related field of public safety, networked with professionals from city, county, state, and private organizations involved with the criminal justice system. Students also spoke with EMTs and physical therapists that were present at the facility. Students gained a personal awareness of the criminal justice system by hearing from experienced officers, hands on demonstrations, live practical trainings, and facility tours. Career opportunities were discussed with the students at this location.
