Two Residents and myself had the chance to take a tour and meet officer of the Dubuque Police Department as part of a field trip with the Criminal Justice Association. We were given a tour of the whole building (minus the jail) and see officers preparing for their night shift. The tour was giving by two officers who were able to provide us with a lot of information and answer all of our questions. The officers also provided us with a lot of information about potential job opportunities such as how the application process for being a police officer works and for how to get a paid summer internship. Needless to say this was a very interesting, informative, and unique way to learn about a potential future employer.
