On April 28, Professor Russ Carter (MA) conducted a mock protective service detail with students in his ADJ 159 Physical Security class.

Carter’s students dressed in business attire with sunglasses, similar to Secret Service agents, to protect a visiting dignitary, “Princess Rafi from Pakistan.”

The students escorted the princess, played by student Rafia Khaliq, in a diamond protective formation to a motorcade of black vehicles which toured the Manassas Campus until they reached Parrish Hall where the dignitary met briefly with Academic Dean Charlene Phillips (MA).

After the meeting, they returned to the vehicles and the motorcade took another slow turn around campus before the exercise was concluded.

“I was impressed by how serious everybody behaved,” Phillips said. “The students guarding my door wouldn’t let anybody in or out without proper identification.”

“My students knew they would be graded on how well they executed all phases of the mission,” Carter said. “Even though it is a serious exercise, they had fun and it’s a good way to end the semester.”
