Conference temporarily closes Meridian, involves helicopter landing on campus

July 20, 2012

The conclusion of the National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference will have a visible presence on campus on Friday, July 20, and will include the temporary closure of Meridian.

The conclusion of the conference will include the presence of numerous law enforcement vehicles on campus, including fire engines, ambulances and police cars as well as demonstrations from a SWAT team, US Marshalls, fire departments and police departments. The demonstrations will include horse patrol demonstrations, a K-9 demonstration, the landing of a flight for life helicopter on the intramural field and police motorcycle demonstration. The rally is a private event on Friday for those involved with the conference.

As a result of the activities, Meridian will be closed from Plum Street to South Drive  from 6 a.m. to noon. 

The National Law Enforcement Exploring rented CSU facilities for the conference. The conference involved law enforcement agencies and fire departments from across the nation. The week-long conference is a career exploration program for young men and women ages 14-20 interested in the field of law enforcement or fire fighting.
