MFD special agents are assigned a classroom and thoroughout the year they provide a mentoring curriculum that addresses work-related concepts and experiences. Through a professionally designed curriculum and a worksite visit, elementary students learn and practice workplace skills and make strong connections between school and work. While at MFD, the students were provided presentations from the Southeast Regional Lab, Diversion, Intelligence and the Airwing. Students were also given demonstrations in fingerprint procedures and K-9 techniques.
