Past students of this program, who ranged in age from students in their mid teens to those in their late 60’s, have been exposed to a wide variety of law enforcement instruction including:

· Traffic investigation and enforcement
· Narcotics and criminal investigation
· Patrol operations including a K-9 display
· Use of force training including using a firearms simulator and a trip to the firing range
· Incident response to terrorist bombing
