On Wednesday, March 23, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger will host a Career Day, for previously selected students, at the Montgomery County Public Safety Headquarters located at 100 Edison Park Drive in Gaithersburg. Fifty Montgomery County public school (MCPS) students who are enrolled in the MCPS Justice, Law, and Society Program; and 50 Montgomery College (MC) students enrolled in the MC Criminal Justice Program were selected by their schools to attend this special learning opportunity.

The day’s program will include a panel discussion with police officers, a deputy sheriff, a corrections officer, a probation officer, and a state’s attorney. The students will learn the importance of education in preparing for a career in public safety and what hurdles the panel of employees overcame to achieve their goals. 

The attendees will get a firsthand opportunity to learn about and see the varied types of careers available in public safety and how best to prepare for this challenging and rewarding profession. They will also receive a guided tour of Montgomery County’s state-of-the-art crime laboratory.

The MCPS Director of the Department of Career Readiness and Innovative Programs Mr. Benjamin OuYang and the Dean of the MC Criminal Justice Program Dr. Darrin Campen will also attend the Career Day activities.
