A course that prepares individuals to perform the duties of police and public security officers, including patrol and investigative activates, traffic control, crowd control and public relations, witness interviewing, evidence collection and management, basic crime prevention methods, equipment operation and maintenance, report preparation, and other routine law enforcement responsibilities. In an effort to provide students with an experience that closely mirrors the real-world, field trips to criminal justice and law enforcement facilities, interaction with experts in local, county, state, and national law enforcement, judicial system, investigative and protective services are embedded throughout the year. Careers in law enforcement are expected to grow for all occupations. A more security-conscious society, concerned homeland security, and drug-related crimes contribute to the increasing demand for services. Students will receive credit for Senior Social Studies/Civics.
