    Service Your Community!

  • In Law Enforcement, all aspects of the criminal justice system including law enforcement, corrections, courts, probation, and 911 dispatching are covered. Lifelong values such as ethical behavior, community service, honesty, responsibility, and physical fitness are taught. Students will gain experience and knowledge to support college coursework and/or a career in the criminal justice field.

    A typical day in class includes classroom instruction, written work, computer-based research, and hands-on training. Students also participate in physical fitness and defense tactics activities. Other hands-on activities include Segway training, handcuffing, crime scene investigation, accident investigation, traffic control, obstacle course events, fingerprint processing, portable radio communication techniques, and more.

    Relevant field trips round out the student’s experience including those to correctional facilities, courts, and various law enforcement departments. All students will have the opportunity to job shadow at a local police department, court, or correctional facility. Guest speakers also visit regularly from many different criminal justice professions.

    Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to continue their education at the college level. College credits are available along with FEMA Incident Command System certification and First Aid / CPR certification.
