Times-Record - - NEWS -

DEN­TON — Stu­dents in the Caro­line Ca­reer and Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter’s home­land se­cu­rity law en­force­ment class took a trip to the Caro­line County 911 call cen­ter, to explore ca­reer paths within home­land se­cu­rity and emer­gency pre­pared­ness.

The tour was led by Steve Hur­lock, Caro­line County De­part­ment of Emer­gency Ser­vices com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­vi­sion chief.

Dur­ing the visit, sev­eral 911 calls were re­ceived, en­abling stu­dents to wit­ness the en­tire process from ini­tial call to re­sponse time, track­ing the re­spon­ders on screen.

Stu­dents also met Caro­line County Emer­gency Plan­ner Jeff Lud­wig, who led a dis­cus­sion on the Na­tional In­ci­dent Man­age­ment Sys­tem.

Bill Hilde­brand, Mary­land Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency’s re­gional li­ai­son for the East­ern Shore, was also on hand.

Stu­dents were led through the his­tory of the Na­tional In­ci­dent Man­age­ment Sys­tem and how this sys­tem im­pacts Caro­line County’s pre­pared­ness for hur­ri­cane sea­son.

Mary­land State Po­lice Trooper Gar­rett Graef spoke to stu­dents about the Trooper Ex­plorer Pro­gram and the Trooper Cadet Pro­gram, as well as ben­e­fits and op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able through the Mary­land State Po­lice De­part­ment.

CCTC’s home­land se­cu­rity law en­force­ment pro­gram in­tro­duces stu­dents to mul­ti­ple as­pects of crim­i­nal jus­tice and law en­force­ment at the lo­cal, state and fed­eral level.
