The Tampa campus hosted the 2nd Annual Criminal Justice Day, a half-day event for 200 local high school students. The event is open and attended by all KU students, faculty, and staff.
Some of the community members who attended to demonstrate their equipment and tactics are specialty teams from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office including: K9, Regional Bomb Disposal Unit, Marine Unit and the Aviation Unit.
The day was kicked off by a lively discussion from many leading professionals in the area of internet crime. The discussion was moderated by Keiser University faculty member, Dr. Vincent Giordano.
Throughout the event there were break-out sessions in the classrooms and labs engaging the guests in hands-on activities in the areas of crime scene processing, blood splatter analysis, criminal hacking, stop and frisk, and criminal case law evaluation. Finally, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit conducted a demonstration of their abilities to maneuver their aircraft and actually landed on the campus parking garage. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office pilots gave students a tour of their helicopter and its capabilities.
