Middleburg Heights Police Department Campus Visit

Last week, Middleburg Heights Police Officers Mark Malenic and Dave Holderbaum visited AU to talk with criminal justice students interested in a position with the Department.  They also spoke to students in CJ 450 (Ethics) about the Middleburg Heights Police Department hiring process and how it relates to hiring practices in law enforcement in general. 
Students Regina Delucia and Brent Grant;
 Officers Malenic and Holderbaum

Professor Hedrick, who arranged the visit last Tuesday, noted that "it's important for students to start thinking about the hiring process earlier than they'd think - by their junior year, really - because it can take a while.  The process involves testing, results for which are usually valid for two years, and getting on a police department or other law enforcement agency's list can put students on track to interview shortly after graduation instead of months after."

Students who were unable to attend the sessions last week should contact Professor Hedrick with any questions.

Thank you, Officers Malenic and Holderbaum!
