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.”
