CRIMINAL JUSTICE and/or PROTECTIVE SERVICES

We have initiated a collaborative relationship with White Mountains Community College, Border Patrol and Protection and other law enforcement agencies to expose our students to careers in protective services. Currently this is primarily criminal justice. WMCC courses including Criminology, Intro to Homeland Security and Intro to Criminal Justice are intended to be offered to students in the future. Ideally, a full multidisciplined CTE program can be developed in consultation with the above mentioned professionals as well as fire science, security and medical experts. A Protective Services CTE program prepares students for careers in firefighting, security, emergency medicine, law enforcement and corrections. With further education and experience, students can find opportunities in occupations such as Fire Marshall or fire line officer, police department administrator or police line officer, industrial security administrator, corrections, EMS or commercial security administrator. 31 Work with the Agency of Education and North Country Career Center will continue in the 2019- 2020 year with increasing opportunities made available to students
