WIU open house gives students hands-on law enforcement training

Western Illinois University is looking to recruit the next generation of law enforcement.

The university held an open house for high school students, looking to get a hands on experience in what could be their future career, on Monday.

Organizers said more than 475 students attended the WIU School of Law enforcement and justice administration open house.

They said the purpose is to show students all the jobs that are available in the law enforcement field and that it’s not just patrolling the streets.
