I am quite proud to be starting my second year working part-time with Sabinal High School Students in our law enforcement classes.
I am currently in my 15th year as a Texas Peace Officer and hold a Master Peace Officer License.
This school year we will be teaching Principals of Policing, Law Enforcement One, and Law Enforcement Two. Along with teaching these three courses we also offer our students a chance to be in the criminal justice club.
As our members call it CJC, we learn a more in-depth approach to actual hands-on law enforcement activities and duties. Last year we competed at the SWTJC Criminal Justice Competition in patdowns, felony traffic stops, fingerprinting, and building clearing.
Principals of Policing:
This course introduces students to professions in law enforcement, security, corrections, and fire and emergency management services. Students will examine the roles and responsibilities of police, courts, corrections, private security, and protective agencies of fire and emergency services. The course provides students with an overview of the skills necessary for careers in law enforcement, fire service, security, and corrections.
Law Enforcement One:
This course is an overview of the history, organization, and functions of local, state, and federal law enforcement. This course includes the role of constitutional law, the United States legal system, criminal law, law enforcement terminology, and the classification and elements of a crime.
Law Enforcement Two:
This course provides the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare for a career in law enforcement. This course includes the ethical and legal responsibilities, the operation of police and emergency telecommunication equipment, and courtroom testimony.
