Retired Rockford Police Officer Eric Bruno wants to show his students firsthand the skills they need to be a police officer. He teaches a course on criminal investigation, part of our Career and Technical Education at East and Jefferson high schools. Mr. Bruno recently had his students walk through a mock crime scene to show what they've learned this year.
Utilizing real-life police procedures, tactics and tools, Mr. Bruno worked with student actors and the police department to create a simulated police call where his students could practice their skills. Students modeled how to respond to a police call where they demonstrated proper interview techniques, threat assessment and crime scene analysis.
By bringing real-world, project-based learning to his students, Mr. Bruno motivates his students to strive for excellence. Teachers like Mr. Bruno – with the support of organizations like the Rockford Police Department – make RPS 205 career pathway opportunities some of the best in the nation.
Congratulations to the following high school seniors!
