TU Students Engage in Firearms Familiarization

ENF335 Law Enforcement Supervision students had the opportunity to attend a 3 hour firearms familiarization event at the Norwalk Police Department firing range. Instruction was provided by Norwalk Police Chief Mike Conney and  Officer Hayden Service, both certified law enforcement firearms instructors. Chief Conney regularly teaches firearms at local police academies and was impressed with the quality of Tiffin University  student progress throughout the day, “All of the students learned quickly and shot well. I was impressed with their performance.”

The program began with lessons on firearms safety, nomenclature, operation, and firing range safety protocols. Students were provided hearing protection, eye protection, ammunition, and the opportunity to handle and fire a law enforcement 9mm handgun and a 12 gauge shotgun. Ammunition was provided through an Ohio Department of Natural Resources grant designed for the introduction into shooting sports, firearm safety and familiarization. Student feedback was extremely positive. Julie Ennemoser stated “this was the best practical experience she has participated in while at Tiffin University.” All students agreed that the quality of instruction and safety of the event was paramount to the day’s positive outcomes. The event was organized by Assistant Professor Kevin Cashen, “It is important for students who desire to enter the law enforcement workforce to assess if daily exposure to firearms fits their professional goals after graduation.”
