Our Hospitality Class had the pleasure of spending the day with the Easton Police Department, learning about the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT).

Officers also detailed why one should not break the law and what could happen if you do break the law. Both officers role played with the students for a real "hands on" experience. The students enjoyed the class and learned a lot of information. Special thanks to the Easton - MD Police Department ... See MoreSee Less
