University of Wisconsin-Superior students Kahley Kallberg, Lyndsey Harp, and Benjamin Dorff recently participated in a two-day training exercise with the Duluth Police Department. They helped the Tactical Response Team (TRT) with training and participated in real life scenarios to hone the team’s skills.

“We enjoyed spending time with all of them and enjoyed seeing the team operate – even though they are very intimidating in action,” said Kallberg. “It was fun to experience all the different scenarios like hostage rescues situations and K9 searches.”  

The Duluth Police Department Tactical Response Team training is critical when it comes to high risk situations. The students participated in building searches where they got to hide and role play as suspects. It was an example of the real world applied learning opportunities that the Legal Studies and Criminal Justice program at UW-Superior provides to its students.  

“This high quality pre-professional program is committed to provided experiential and real world applied learning right next to demanding theoretical work so that students being to connect the dots between theory and practice in law and justice,” said Dr. Maria Cuzzo, LSTU and CJUS Program Coordinator. “Our community partners, such as the Duluth Police Department, helps to provide these opportunities for students just as we provide services and research opportunities for the partner – it is a win-win situation.”
