As a part-time officer for the Edgerton Police Department, Kristin Pilarski is doing more than protecting and serving her community. She’s also breaking down barriers. With the support of her family and instructors at NSCC, Kristin found the encouragement she needed to pursue her dream career, even though it’s in a male-dominated field.
Students in Dave Mohring’s statics class put their engineering skills to the test by competing to build the tallest structure out of marshmallows and spaghetti. This is just one of the many unique ways faculty at NSCC keep students engaged through hands-on learning.
Northwest State recently purchased a pre-owned patrol vehicle from the Whitehouse Police Department for use in the Law Enforcement Academy program. The purchase, a vehicle previously used by reserve officers, is the latest instance of a positive, long-standing working relationship between the Whitehouse P.D. and Northwest State.
“Chief Mark McDonough has generously supported the Law Enforcement Academy program at Northwest State. He has been an instructor here, he has provided valuable externship opportunities for cadets, and again today has helped secure a vehicle for training,” said Lori Robison, associate vice president for academics at NSCC. “The program now has two vehicles to help prepare today’s cadets to become tomorrow’s patrol officers throughout the region,” continued Robison.
Robison also noted that NSCC has relied on the generosity of local departments to loan the College vehicles for training. “The vehicles give us the tools to better train our cadets for vehicle patrol, traffic enforcement, stops and approaches, as well as driving techniques,” concluded Robison.
When: Wednesday, August 24 & Thursday, August 25
Time: 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4:30-5:30 p.m.
