The Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES’ School and Business Alliance (SABA) will host its first Law Enforcement Career Info Night on Tuesday, Nov. 19 from 6-8 p.m. in the Howard D. Mettelman Learning Center.
The one-night event will offer interested students in grades 9-12 and their parents the opportunity to learn about career opportunities in law enforcement and hear from the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office; the Utica, Rome and New Hartford Police Departments and the New York State Police.
Anyone interested in attending the event is asked to preregister by contacting Joanna Demma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 2008, law enforcement has remained the second most requested career interest for job shadowing opportunities among students from school districts that participate in SABA. Local law enforcement agencies have provided many career exploration opportunities for high school students throughout Oneida County.
SABA provides career development and work-based learning experiences which inspire and enable students to make informed decisions about post-secondary and career opportunities. SABA partners with business, labor, community agencies, school districts and regional colleges to enlighten students of essential professional skills, civic responsibilities and the emerging workforce needs for the 21st Century. These partnerships provide K-12 career development experiences that empower students to successfully transition into post-secondary studies and career pathways.
