High School Hosts Law Enforcement Day
Houston, Texas: On May 15, 2015, North Shore Senior High School hosted its 2nd Annual Law Enforcement Day, which spotlighted all the law enforcement agencies that protect our local communities. The purpose of this event is to give students the opportunity to interact with members of our law enforcement community and experience first hand some of the technologies utilized in maintaining the safety of our roads and neighborhoods. North Shore Senior High School staff and students showed their support for our officers who can face extremely dangerous situations while carrying out their duties. NSSH also recognized and thanked these brave men and women who protect and serve our communities day after day. Michael Dirden, Executive Assistant Chief of Police for the Houston Police Department, spoke to the students about career opportunities in the law enforcement. He emphasized the importance of making good decisions and the effects that will have on their lives. Harris County Sheriff's Office, Houston Police Department and Texas Department of Public Safety each sent representatives from various divisions that make up their agencies, including: SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics); Air Support; Bomb Squad; Marine Division; Mounted Patrol; K-9; Crime Scene Unit and others. Representatives from the University of Houston-Downtown and San Jacinto College spoke with students about education and career pathways.
