Here at the Delaware Area Career Center, we have so many different programs and we all work within separate classes and we work on projects with the rest of our class, but there are few things that we all do the same. The only thing that we all definitely learn about is employability skills. Having the skills of trade that we learn are great and all but if we can't get a good job in the field, then it is useless. So through our JOG class, one of the things we learn about is how to impress a future employer.
Hey. Talia again. And yes, the end is near. Even though second semester just recently started, us Law Enforcement Seniors are saying goodbye to our classmates and getting ready to go out on job placement or internship. This is the time that we all couldn't wait for when we started the class as juniors but now we are dreading it. We have grown to love each other over the past year and a half and saying goodbye is going to be one of the hardest parts of this school year. On February 1st we started our placements and now more than ever I'm missing my Law Enforcement family and all of the good times we had together.
So in Law Enforcement there are MANY skills that each of the cadets in my class must be proficient at like Defensive Driving, Precision Aiming, Take Downs and things like that. Our lab at Delaware is equipped with MANY things to help us learn all of these skills but we have two really special things that set us apart.
Hey! My name is Talia and I’m a Senior in Law Enforcement at the Delaware Area Career Center. Many people are thrown back when I tell them I am in Law Enforcement due to my gender. I’ll admit, adjusting to all of the rules and standards of Law Enforcement was difficult, but not impossible. Of course all of the boy cadets were skeptical of me at first because I couldn’t do many push-ups, or keep up with them on a run, but over time I earned their respect. The key is to just keep trying. If you don’t give up and just give it your best every time, they have to respect your dedication.
