Public Safety Career Fair
The Dane County Sheriff’s Office sponsored their first annual Criminal Justice Career Fair on
September 23, 2009. The event was a huge success with nearly 30 agencies and colleges on hand
to offer opportunities in the field of criminal justice.
Over 500 people attended the one-day event at the Exhibition Hall of the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI. In addition
to watching the numerous demonstrations put on throughout the day, attendees were able to speak with
recruiters from criminal justice agencies throughout the state. The event offered a wide array of
opportunities for both sworn and civilian careers.
Although our past Criminal Justice Career Fairs were great successes, we are trying something new this year.
We are happy to announce that we have expanded to a Public Safety Career Fair. This will include, as always,
criminal justice agencies and schools that offer criminal justice courses/opportunities. In addition, we are
proud to invite fire departments, EMS, military, more federal agencies, more dispatch centers and more court services.
Welcome to all our new participating agencies and schools!
The Dane County Sheriff's Office is hosting its 5th annual Career Fair, but it's 1st Annual Public Safety Career Fair on Wednesday, September 18, 2013, from 11:00am to 4:00pm, in the Exhibition Hall of the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI.
We would like to extend an invitation to your agency/school to participate in this event. This is a great opportunity to recruit quality applicants and to enhance public relations while assisting
attendees with exploring possible career options in Public Safety.
Last years event drew in nearly 200 attendees and received very favorable feedback from the agencies and schools
represented. We again intend on marketing the fair on line, at local colleges and schools, business,
newspapers and many local community publications including UMOJA, Asian Wisconzine, Madison Times,
Capital City Hues, La Cummunidad and Brava.
We will have at least 50 booths available for participating agencies and schools. The registration fee
is $115.00 which includes one 8' x 10' space, one 8' skirted table, two chairs, one boexed lunch and a brief overview in
the Career Fair Guide. Additional boxed lunches can be purchased for $15.00 each. Electrical connections (1000-watt) are available for an additional $50.00.
At the Public Safety Career Fair, attendees will receive a Career Fair Guide of participating agencies/schools with a brief
overview of each and the schedule of events. Each employer has the opportunity
to purchase a full page ad in the Career Fair Guide for $100.00 and be listed as a Co-Sponsor for the
event on posters, flyers and in the guides. To allow ample advertising and printing time the registration
deadline for agencies/schools interested in Co-Sponsoring will be July 29th, 2013. Our general registration deadline for
the Public Safety Career Fair will be August 26th, 2013.
- We are scheduling a variety of law enforcement related demonstrations (EOD, K-9, CSU, etc.) You are
welcome to put together a demonstration which we can include in the published schedule of events
available in the Career Fair Guide. Please let us know by the Co-Sponsor deadline of July 29th, 2013 so
we can include your demonstration in the Career Fair Guide.
- If your agency is unable to attend but would like to provide handout information we can add it to the
free-will pick up booth at the fair.
