ACM to mark Law Day with agency visits, equipment displays

April 29th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Constitution. Law enforcement agencies such as the Cumberland Police Department and Maryland State Police have committed to bring vehicles and the state fire marshal's office will show a robot used in its investigations. From corrections, representatives of both the Federal Correctional Institution at Mexico Farms and the Western and North Branch correctional institutions at Cresaptown will send personnel to the event. Law Day begins with the arrival of Trooper 5, the medevac helicopter operated by Maryland State Police. It will land on a lower-campus ball field at about 10 a.m., weather permitting. A roundtable of local criminal justice professionals will be held in the College Center’s Zimmer Theatre at 11 a.m. The discussion will be facilitated by the C2J, a criminal justice student group. At 1:30 p.m., FCI personnel will demonstrate tactical methods near the Physical Education Building. As their techniques employ distractionary devices that involve smoke and loud noise, the college community will be alerted that day so as not to be alarmed. For more information about Law Day contact Brandon Hoover, ACM assistant professor and program coordinator of criminal justice, paralegal and political science studies. He can be reached at 301-784-5300 or
