Harlem Avenue) on Tuesday, October 21 from 9:45am to 10:30am, and then again later that day from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in the Student Lounge. Students, faculty, and staff as well as members of the public are invited to participate in this community service event. Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 44.

[Bridgeview, IL] Northwestern College’s Juvenile Justice Classes were given a second visit from the Bridgeview Police Department as part of a partnership developed to engage the Criminal Justice students with current, hands-on knowledge from juvenile officers working in the field. Three visits were scheduled as part of the Summer Quarter’s Juvenile Justice Class, with each visit calibrated to intensify as the students’ knowledge in the area of law widened. Last week the Bridgeview Police Department provided its second of three presentations for the course, this one by Juvenile Officer Patricia Prince who also currently serves as Bridgeview’s D.A.R.E officer. This partnership with the Bridgeview Police is the College’s first multi-presentation initiative on a single law enforcement topic, although law enforcement officers from numerous local, state and federal agencies frequently come out to speak to classes as special guest speakers throughout the year.
