The Law Enforcement Mentor Program is designed to help current students cultivate a network of contacts in the Law Enforcement community. Students that sign up for the program are assigned to a participating Rasmussen alumnus or Professional Partner who is employed as a police officer. The 6-month mentor relationship begins during the beginning of the student's program and progresses to the point where the mentor can make specific career suggestions, serve as a reference, and potentially help the student build additional professional relationships. This is a voluntary non-accredited program.
Below is a list of some of the activities and experiences students may gain from the program:
- Opportunity to participate in ride-alongs
- Mock interviewing with various Law Enforcement agencies
- Insight into the background check process
- Tours of Law Enforcement agencies and courthouse
- Job shadow peace officers in a multitude of specialty departments
- One on one Q & A with professionals in the Law Enforcement field
- Networking opportunity to make connections with those responsible for recruiting and hiring officers
