Huot Law Enforcement students face real pressure in mock police oral boards


LACONIA — The students from the Law Enforcement class at the Huot Career and Technical Center were put under pressure as they participated in mock interviews – "Mock Police Oral Boards" the first week of June.

Prior to the oral board, students were taught basic communication skills and how to properly prepare for a real police job interview. Basics such as handshakes, eye contact and demeanor as well as being able to "sell themselves" were taught and practiced prior to the actual interviews. The students were expected to know about the organization and the city they were testing for (Laconia Police Department).

The board consisted of Sgt. Bill Wright of the Belknap County Sheriff's Department; Captain Bill Clary and Officer Michelle Cardinal of the Laconia Police Department. All questions were taken from actual police oral boards, past interviews. The questions were designed to have the students articulate to the board their desire and expectations in becoming a law enforcement officer. Certain stressors were included in the interview process to give the students a real life feeling of what it is like in an actual oral board. Several scenario based questions were also asked of the students. After the interview the three assessors critiqued the student's performance, reviewed their strengths and any areas in need of improvement.

The Huot Technical Center is the only Law Enforcement program in New Hampshire that offers an actual mock police interview. Students Gage Baker and Mikayla Bordeau of Laconia High School, expressed how it was one of the most intimidating, yet rewarding experiences. They feel as if they learned how to be successful and understand the benefits of being prepared as it gave them great self-confidence during the interview.
