Hill graduated from Ball State with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice. She also completed an internship with the Muncie Police Department and later became a reserve officer at their agency while working with their drug task force.

John Busack is 23-years-old and graduated from Columbus East High School. He graduated from IUPUI with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice. Busack has been employed with Bartholomew County Community Corrections for the past two years.
