• What will my classes be like?

    Have you ever seen Chicago PD or CSI on television and wondered how the crime was solved or why the judge withdrew evidence? 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. Imagine yourself as a police officer on the beat, a lawyer serving justice in the courtroom, or a detective on the crime scene all while enforcing the laws that make this country great.

    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 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.
