CiTi Presents 22 Public Safety & Justice Graduates to the Workforce
The Center for Instruction, Technology & Innovation’s Public Safety & Justice program recently graduated 22 seniors who are ready for the workforce or continuing education.
The two-year program offers two tracks: police or firefighting. The police side teaches public speaking, team building, penal law, criminal procedure law, crime scene investigation, forensics, fingerprinting, vehicle stops, arrests and security guard training. The fire side offers firefighting instruction, safety, ropes and knots, rappelling, vehicle extrication, rescue techniques and experience on live fire training grounds. Both tracks provide CPR/AED certification, stop the bleeding training and a comprehensive physical training program.
“We express to them the importance of learning to work together and to live by core values: honor, respect, integrity and professionalism,” said Public Safety and Justice Instructor Charles Searor Jr.
