Criminal justice 207 Police & Society class learns duties and responsibilities of working with a K-9

Superior Police Department K-9 Unit-Officer Jeff Harriman and K-9 Lacka gave a presentation and demonstration to the criminal justice 207 Police & Society class on December 7 in Swenson Hall. The real-world learning experience was coordinated by senior lecturer Steve Steblay, a former St. Louis County Sheriff Department leader.

Harriman discussed his duties and responsibilities, benefits of having a K-9 unit and the liabilities involved and spoke about the intense training and care involved with working with his valuable partner. Numerous students had the opportunity to meet and talk in person with Harriman and interact with Lacka.

“Students experienced in-person, one of the dynamic functions of our local law enforcement agency,” said Steblay. “Everyone was impressed with Officer Harriman’s expertise as a K-9 handler and Lacka’s abilities in drug searches, tracking and confronting suspects.”

This is another example of the active teaching and learning methods used consistently across the legal studies and criminal justice classes. For more information, please contact program coordinator Maria Cuzzo.
