    Program Profile
    Criminal Justice students obtain the knowledge and skills applicable to a variety of public safety careers with a direct pathway to criminal justice and corrections professions. Specialized classroom and practical learning are directed by law enforcement professionals representing local agencies. A blend of safety, law enforcement, investigation, ethics, human relations and equipment training offers an in-depth view into the world of criminal
    justice and public safety. Discipline and respect play a large part in the day-to-day operation of the program. Because a large number of Career Center Criminal Justice students graduate then enroll in a two- or four-year college or university, academic excellence is stressed. Additionally, a Forensic Science elective class is available where you can learn beginning and advanced investigative techniques. Acceptance into the Criminal Justice program requires a character recommendation from a principal or counselor. Recommendation forms are available in each of the seven associate schools’ guidance offices that partner with Greene County Career Center.
