Students learned new skills to help them succeed in job interviews and prepare for college.

Students say officers had a big impact on them during the six-week program and that it was an experience they’ll never forget.

Kaycee Conner says she’s going to miss the officers who taught her how to be confident and sell herself to future employers.

“I was really nervous because they were officers. I thought they were going to be mean, but it was very comfortable, like working with my peers,” said Conner.

Norfolk Police say they hope the program helps them build stronger relationships with the high school students in the area.
