Waldorf, MD --  The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is offering a big congratulations to three local high school students after their top-10 finish in a national competition.

Sabreeya Holly, Madison Meade, and Karla Dizon, all students in North Point High School’s (NPHS) Criminal Justice program, competed  at the 2019 SkillsUSA National Competition held in late June in Kentucky.

The students took part in the Crime Scene Investigation competition (CSI) against several teams from across the nation

Their Charles County Sheriff's Office coach, Officer Melanie Tyner spent months prepping the girls for competition.

For the competition, the students had to process a mock crime scene and legally search for and collect evidence. They even had to lift a latent fingerprint from an item of evidence. After properly marking the evidence, they wrote a report and sketched the scene.

The NPHS team placed 10th in the nation. “I am beyond proud of these girls for placing in the top ten nationwide. They worked so hard to get here and their training and dedication to the competition paid off,” said Officer Tyner.
