"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Brown Mackie College Criminal Justice Olympics

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!
