Our high school in Florida is one of only four schools that offers a Criminal Justice Program. We currently have around three hundred students within the program and it is a four year academy. Students in the Criminal Justice Program are future leaders within our communities. They are taught to display honesty, loyalty and integrity within their daily lives and strive to be the leaders of our school. Our class motto is, "Character is what you do when others are not looking."
My Criminal Justice program is a four-year program that is broken down into four different levels. The first level is an introduction to the criminal justice system, level two is about policing and investigation, level three is about forensics, and level four is about security and terrorism. Our level four students are in need of 12 5.11 ThumbDrive Level 2 Retention holsters to wear on their duty belts during scenario training. My students are put through real-world scenarios that will make them determine when and when not to pull out their duty weapons. Students are recorded during the scenario and we review each scenario with the class to determine what they did correctly and what they need to improve upon.
Students seem to learn better when they are required to act upon a scenario instead of talking about it in class.
