RALEIGH, N.C. (September 11, 2015) - Wake Tech marked September 11 with special tributes at three of its campuses. At the Public Safety Education Campus, law enforcement officials, members of the military, and other first responders honored the heroes and victims of that day with a special ceremony. Charles Walston, Director of Office Staff Development & Training for the NC Department of Public Safety, told those assembled that terrorism is still a threat in our world and “we must remain vigilant.”
 
Representatives of each branch of the military and officials from the Department of Corrections lit candles at the Memorial Wall. Wake Tech Executive Vice President Dr. Gayle Greene thanked all the first responders for their service. “Thanks to you, we all feel much safer,” she said.
 
Outside, former Wake Tech EVP Gerald Mitchell laid a wreath at the flagpole. The ceremony concluded with the tolling of a bell and the release of doves.
At Wake Tech’s Main and Northern Wake campuses, students, faculty, and staff marked the day with a moment of silence.
 
Wake Tech provides in-service training for about 8,000 law enforcement personnel each year from local police departments, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office, the State Bureau of Investigation, and the NC Department of Public Safety. The Wake Tech Public Safety Training Academy is accredited by CALEA®, the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. Wake Tech’s Basic Law Enforcement Training Program enrolls about 75 students each year.
