They will also be introduced to different law enforcement agencies, the history of law enforcement, ethics, and how police communicate on radio, and other basic police operations.
Juniors will complete hands-on training in traffic stops, advanced handcuffing, knife defense, and advanced defensive tactics. They will also learn about criminal law, court procedure, constitutional law, state law, juvenile law, DUI and sobriety tests, gangs, and criminal court procedures.
Seniors will complete hands-on training in high risk traffic stops, transport procedures, vehicle searches, weapon retention and disarming, photographing, crime scene sketching, fingerprinting, and collecting evidence.
