FSU to Host Fourth Annual Law Enforcement Awareness Day and Bobcat Challenge

The Frostburg State University Police will host the fourth annual Law Enforcement Awareness Day on Wednesday, Sept. 22, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the Lower Quad of the FSU campus. It will be followed by the first-ever Bobcat Challenge later that day from 7 to 9 p.m., also on the Lower Quad. All events are free and open to the public.

For the first part of the day, federal, state and local law enforcement agencies will provide professional demonstrations, table displays, recruiting and crime prevention tips and handouts. Photograph and fingerprint identification for children will also be provided, along with the Alpha Sigma Alpha’s presentation of the Battle of the Bands and Talent Competition. McGruff the Crime Dog, Crash Dummies Vince and Larry and the FSU Bobcat mascot will be on hand throughout the day.

The Seven-Member Team Obstacle Course begins the second part of the day. The event is open to everyone. The winning team’s name and the date will be engraved on the Bobcat Challenge Trophy plaque, which will be placed on display in Lane University Center.

If it rains, L.E.A.D. events will be held in the Performing Arts Center lobby. The first event is coordinated by University Police, Cpl. Michael Ruppenkamp and the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority; the Bobcat Challenge is organized by the Kappa Beta Gamma sorority.
