The Ethical Society of Police Pre-Academy Program students, who graduate on May 25, will collect data from the attendees and talk about the recruitment program at the ESOP booth. As part of the community service portion of the program, they will engage the community by running the games, monitoring the bounce houses, assisting at the stage and resource table and also grilling hot dogs and hamburgers. They will set up and break down the event and make sure there is no litter left behind.
