The Criminal Justice program is a semi-military program, with students required to wear uniforms twice a week. A physical workout is also part of the daily schedule. The program is devoted to teaching patience, respect, furthering student's education, and providing educational choices and advanced employment preparation for our students.
In the Criminal Justice program students will learn report writing, patrol techniques, Ohio Revised Code, evidence collection, traffic stops, building searches, private security, and forensic science. All of the hands-on projects can allow students to receive several certifications, such as Dispatch, Armament Systems and Procedures (ASP), Oleoresin Capsicum Spray (OC), and First Aid/CPR. Students in the Criminal Justice program may also earn up to 9 college credits in lab from Sinclair Community College.
The students who complete the Criminal Justice program go on to work at security companies or local sheriff/police departments as dispatchers or corrections officers. Other students choose to continue their education at post-secondary institutions or join the military.
