Criminal justice and paralegal ‘Lunch & Learn’ set for Erie County Public Safety Campus

The final 2015 free “Lunch & Learn” seminar will be offered by Bryant & Stratton College at noon Dec. 17 at Erie County’s downtown Public Safety Campus, 45 Elm St.

The event will feature a panel of local experts in the fields of law and law enforcement who will speak to prospective students interested in careers in criminal justice and paralegal.

The panel includes representatives from the Western New York Paralegal Association, Hodgson Russ LLP, State University of New York at Buffalo Police Department and the New York State Police.

“We are pleased that Bryant & Stratton has chosen to include the criminal justice and legal fields for their Dec. 17 ‘Lunch & Learn’,” explains Daniel Neaverth, Jr., commissioner of Erie County Emergency Services. “Whenever we can assist in educating the public on the rewards of a career that serves our community, we are happy to be involved.”  Neaverth’s division is headquartered in the Public Safety Campus along with the Erie County Sheriff’s Department, FBI forensic laboratories, Central Police Communications division, and Enhanced 911 call center.  The seminar will feature a tour of some areas of the building that are able to be viewed by the public.

Bryant & Stratton College has been presenting several “Lunch & Learn” sessions in 2015 in selected fields of study that include healthcare, medical reimbursement coding and business.

“We have launched this program across New York State as a public forum to give valuable exposure to those who are looking to make a career change or to add to their educational credentials,” explains Jeff Tredo, director of New York State campuses for Bryant & Stratton College.  “We plan to continue this successful public outreach in 2016 with an expanded schedule.”

There will be a free lunch served to all guests, catered by Osteria 166. Parking is also complimentary at the public parking lot adjacent to the Public Safety Campus on South Division between Elm Street and Michigan Avenue.
