CRIMINAL JUSTICE STUDENTS OBTAIN THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS applicable to a variety of public safety careers with a direct pathway to criminal justice, private security, and corrections professions.  Specialized classroom and practical learning are directed by law enforcement professionals representing local and federal agencies. Because a large number of Career Center Criminal Justice students graduate then enroll in a two or four year college or university, academic excellence is stressed. Additionally, a Forensic Science elective class is available where you can learn beginning and advanced investigative techniques.
