Launch Emergency Response Technology
  • Program Description

    The class will cover ethical considerations for criminal justice professionals and challenges to police officers, as well as constitutional considerations for policing. The class will also cover the functions and structure of the court and judicial system. Further topics will include correctional institutions, current and pending court cases, juvenile justice, and role-playing opportunities related to criminal justice.

  • What will my classes be like?

    You will learn the legal process starting from the investigation, to the arrest, and the law behind it all. You will practice police tactical response maneuvers, courtroom proceedings through mock trials, and collecting evidence at a crime scene. All of this will bring you one step closer to becoming a police officer enforcing the law, a lawyer safeguarding the judicial process, or a correctional officer providing rehabilitation.
