November 13, 2014 : Fairfield County Sheriff to Speak to OUL Law Enforcement Technology Class
- Cheri Russo
Communications and Marketing Manager
Lancaster – Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen will speak to a Law Enforcement Technology class at OUL tonight at 6:30 p.m.  Phalen is going to speak to Lecturer Lisa Taylor’s Administration and Supervision class about leadership.
"As the Law Enforcement Technology program coordinator, I attempt to provide the LET students a worldview of both career opportunities and criminal justice perspectives,” said Taylor. “It is critical that our students see, hear, and question field experts in their areas of expertise and responsibility."
The mission of the Law Enforcement Technology program at the Ohio University Lancaster Campus is to provide a two-year academic program tailored to current law enforcement personnel or those preparing for a career in law enforcement. The program provides professional training and credit hours that may be applied towards a Bachelor's of Criminal Justice degree.
“As the premier law enforcement authority in Fairfield County, Sheriff Phalen can relay, firsthand, some of the challenges and opportunities he has experienced as they relate to our subject matter--Administration and Supervision of Law Enforcement,” said Taylor. “While most of our students haven't yet worked in the criminal justice arena, in this class, they can garner an overview of unique issues specific to this line of work."
