Over a two year period, this program will cover such topics and methods of instruction as; police history and theory; criminal, juvenile, civil, traffic and alcoholic beverage laws; crash investigations, and community relations. Additional activities simulating criminal investigations will be used to teach scientific knowledge related to anatomy, biology, and chemistry.
