NOW: Trowbridge School students visit Milwaukee FBI office

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Students from Trowbridge School toured the FBI’s Milwaukee field office on the lakefront.

Students were able to learn how to gather fingerprints and other evidence. The FBI and Trowbridge teamed up for the Bureau’s “Adopt-A-School” program. It sends FBI agents to classrooms to build relationships between young people and law enforcement.

“Social media is all they see. Media TV is all they see. So what they see on CSI, Law and Order, that’s not realistic. So we want to give them a realistic view about what we do in law enforcement,” said Gina McDonald with the FBI’s Milwaukee office.

“What I like most today, I kinda like the suit that I have on now. It’s kinda hot, but it’s kinda cool ‘cause I kinda look like I’m an alien or something like that,” said Trowbridge student Makiyah Buck.

The FBI has been visiting Trowbridge since February.

Thursday’s visit to the field office included a graduation ceremony for the students.
