On October 27, 2015, the Impact Learning Center, Jackson County Economic Authority, Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, Northeast Alabama Community College, Ernest Pruitt Center of Technology and the Scottsboro School System hosted the annual Career Exploration Opportunities Expo.
The Scottsboro Police Department participated by setting up displays and allowing over 600 ninth grade students of Jackson County area a first hand look and feel of police vehicles, equipment and the tools that the Scottsboro Police utilize on an everyday basis. The Detectives and SRO officers assigned to the display were very surprised and excited that the students showed so much interest in the law enforcement field.
