career and technical education program.
Classes are offered to provide overviews for jobs in public service as
well as local, state, and federal law enforcement. Students explore the legal system in addition
to constitutional and criminal law through mock trials, traffic stops, arrest
procedures, and court systems. Advanced
courses are available in criminal investigation, forensic science, forensic
psychology, and practicums with local agencies.
Cari Davis, a former Hood County Sheriff’s Office
deputy, leads the law and public safety classes. Serving as mentors are individuals with the
sheriff’s office and Granbury Police Department.
