For those of you who do know, I am working on getting a degree in Criminal Justice. Thus some of the postings I have had in the past mumbling about JAG correspondence courses. Well I was chosen to represent my school this past weekend in Louisville Ky. to participate in a practical application competition on skills that are taught in the Criminal Justice program at my college.
There were 5 schools represented at this years competition. This is the first year that Brown Mackie-Tulsa has competed in this competition and due to trying to figure things out and some lapses in communication our teams went in sorta behind the 8-ball.
There were competitions over the following applications. These are team applications where 2 or more team members participated in.
Executing a Search Warrant
Performing a Traffic Stop
Crime Scene Investigation
Responding to a Burglary in Progress
The following competitions were individually scored.
Writing a Report
Overall Knowledge Bowl.
So after a long hard day of competition the results came in.
My team won the silver medal in the Executing a Search Warrant
and My team took home the gold medal in Responding to a Burglary in Progress!!!! Now this is despite the fact that I being the tail officer in the entry was killed due to the fact we did not kick in the door the way we wanted to because they put a Caprica look a like behind the door and we did not want to break her nose upon entry! Next time we will not be so nice!
I personally took home a silver medal in the overall knowledge bowl.
And also for being a first time school at the event and being behind the 8-ball placed 3rd in the presidents trophy race for the overall school competition.
If you happen to know me on facebook right now you will see a picture of me with my medals, I know one looks bronze but it is silver trust me.
I am proud to say that I loved every minute of this trip with my fellow students and my Criminal Justice advisor who is a Reserve Tulsa Police Officer. It was a great time and cannot wait to do it again next year!
