Passaic County Technical Institute’s Agency Networking Initiative Expands Criminal Justice Learning

October 8th, 2014

Senior Criminal Justice/Public Safety students of Passaic County Technical Institute (PCTI) received a healthy dose of educational exploration when they participated in the high school’s Agency Networking Initiative.

The event, held at the Public Safety Academy in Wayne, allowed students to experience interactive Q&A sessions with members of the Wayne Fire Company #4, the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department, Wayne EMS, and NJ State Police Helicopter Pilots.

These up close and personal exchanges highlighted the importance of cross-communication and the chain of command between multiple agencies during emergency situations. The collaborative focus of this engaging event proved to be an eye-opening experience for all parties involved.
