In this three-act episode, Ryan and Paige hear from Katrina Goodman’s experience in law enforcement, specifically her participation in an undercover operation immediately after completing graduate school at Longwood University. As Goodman introduces her story, before diving deep into it in act three, her unique experiences reveal varying aspects of the law enforcement profession. In act two, Ryan attends Longwood’s Law Enforcement career fair where he interviews employers, students, and faculty members.
Through these conversations, employers share what they look for in students attending career fairs, students convey their excitement and nervousness as they start to navigate the transition from college life to work life, and faculty express enthusiasm about the future of their students. Later in ACT three, she provides great insight into the amount of work, consideration, and dedication involved in creating an authentic undercover story. Her distinct experiences in a deep undercover operation display the positive effects of selflessness and integrity by law enforcement and an overwhelming commitment to the welfare of others.
