Public Safety Academy
Public Safety Instructor
In the Public Safety - Law Enforcement program, students gain a background in the American legal system,
the U.S. Constitution, and the criminal justice system. Students will also develop the knowledge
and skills to be successful in a public service job preparation program.
It helps to be able to work as a team through physical training and apply problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication skills.
Students are required to dress out for PT 1 day per week and official uniform on Fridays.

CREDENTIALING CERTIFICATION OPPORTUNITIES
Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to build stackable credentials as they navigate their programs of study. This will make our students more valuable to potential employers. Public Safety currently does not offer any credentialing certification opportunities.
Students may receive articulated credit through the Alabama State Community College System after completing quality assurance criteria in this Career Technical program.
