VGCC’s BLET Cadets Serve as Part of NCDOT’s Fall Litter Sweep

News, Program News, Student News

It is great to work at a place where everyone pulls together and makes things happen! On Friday, September 29, 21 Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) cadets, Director Brandon Bishop, and Captain Tony Clark pulled together once again to clean up litter along Poplar Creek Road near Vance-Granville’s Main Campus. BLET cadets have picked up trash along the roadside for the past three years since Criminal Justice Technology has not had any on-campus students. Please offer these students and faculty a “thank you” if you see them. Almost two hours of time was donated, and 19 bags of litter were collected. I sincerely appreciate their help and know I can count on any one of them to step up and volunteer their time for public service.

VGCC’s BLET cadets helped clean up Henderson’s public spaces as part of N.C. Department of Transportation’s Fall Litter Sweep. Traditionally scheduled for the last two weeks of April and September each year, Litter Sweep is NCDOT’s biannual statewide roadside litter removal initiative. Volunteer residents throughout the state participated in local efforts to help clean up North Carolina’s roadways.
