Overview

Criminal Justice II introduces students to concepts and practices in traffic control as well as forensic investigation at crime scenes.  Students will have opportunities to use mathematical skills in crash reconstruction and analysis activities requiring measurements and performance of speed/acceleration calculations.  Additional activities simulating criminal investigations will be used to teach scientific knowledge related to anatomy, biology, and chemistry as well as collection of evidence, developing and questioning suspects, and protecting the integrity of physical evidence found at the scene and while in transit to a forensic science laboratory.  Procedures for the use and control of informants, inquiries keyed to basic leads, and other information gathering activities and chain of custody procedures will also be reviewed.  Current trends in criminal justice and law enforcement will also be covered.

 

When you Finish

Students who complete the Criminal Justice program go on to pursue careers in law enforcement, conservation, forensics, security, or criminal justice. Students continue their education at 2-year and 4-year colleges, join the military, or enter the workforce.
