City of Effingham donates squad car to Lake Land College Criminal Justice Program

The City of Effingham recently donated a 2006 Chevrolet Impala to be used in the Criminal Justice Program at Lake Land College.

The vehicle will be used to supplement the education of the criminal justice students, giving them a well-rounded and practical experience. Although the vehicle is not yet equipped with specialized tools, the Coles County Sheriff’s Office and Mattoon Police Department have agreed to donate and install specialized equipment that is no longer needed by their departments. 

“This hands-on experience will help students learn critical applications and techniques, reinforcing classroom concepts and allow them to be more successful during employment after graduation from the college,” said Dustin Heuerman, criminal justice instructor. “This equipment will help create a very unique learning experience for our students.” 

To learn more about the Criminal Justice Program at Lake Land College, contact Heuerman at (217) 234-5310 or dheuerman2186@lakeland.cc.il.us. Or visit the program’s website at www.lakeland.cc.il.us/as/sse/criminal_justice/index.cfm
