PUBLIC SAFETY PROGRAM (Law Enforcement Course & Emergency Medical Technician/Firefighting Course)

The Public Safety Program (LE & EMT/FF) is designed to introduce you to a career that is exciting and personally rewarding.  This academically rigorous and physically demanding program emphasizes teamwork and effective communication skills.  Students will be asked to demonstrate a positive attitude and good moral characteristics that exemplify that of a Public Safety Employee.  This is a college level program that has a strong emphasis on Law Enforcement Skills and Emergency Medical Technician Skills.  Both the Emergency Medical Technician Class and the Law Enforcement Class are also exposed to Basic Firefighting Skills.

** Students are required to undergo a background check and drug screening test prior to admission into the program. **


Students in Public Safety (Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services, and Firefighting) learn and practice skills that prepare them for diverse post-high school education and training opportunities, from apprenticeships and two-year college programs to four-year college and graduate programs.  The military (Active-Duty, Guard, and Reserves) is also another path to gain public safety knowledge and experience and to get college paid for through the G.I. Bill.
