Law Enforcement Police Science

Law Enforcement / Police Science 

Prerequisite: Min 2.0 GPA; 90% attendance record; reading, writing, &
math at 10th grade level.

This course is a one year course and will provide students with
knowledge in the field of law enforcement/police science and prepare
them for continuing education and ultimately, employment in a related
field. This course is designed to acquaint the student with historical
perspectives of law enforcement and a variety of criminal justice career
fields, including but not limited to: Crime Scene Investigation, Law
Enforcement, Police Science, Patrol Theories, Report Writing, Legal
Studies, and Leadership Competencies. Course content may include the
discussion and viewing of some of man’s worst crime scenes.

Students will be exposed to use of force scenarios in which they must effectively
decide whether to use force and what level of force is acceptable.
Students will be exposed to real world scenarios which include language
and actions consistent with law enforcement encounters. All are
significant and vital to our past, present and future in the investigation
of such crimes committed by our fellow man. The goal is to become
increasingly aware of the social forces that shape our lives and gain
insight into the many different aspects of law enforcement and how they
influence society’s views and opinions on how we deal with and handle
the crimes of man. The atmosphere of this class is similar to a mini-police
academy. Students will be expected to stand when an adult enters the
classroom; they will participate in Roll Call and the Pledge each day.
They will be expected to participate in Drill Procedures and learn to
march in unison.
