Welcome to LVHS Criminal Justice

 
 
Welcome to LVHS Criminal Justice / Law Enforcement :

Students today are interested in careers in law enforcement, forensics, homeland security, law, investigations, corrections and dispatching, to name just a few. The Law, Public Safety, Correction and Security Cluster has all this and more!
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the forecast for the homeland security industry is growth from $40 billion in 2004 to $180 billion in 2015. Since many of the personnel for homeland security positions are recruited from existing cluster occupations the result will be an increasing growth in jobs with new certifications and skills being discovered every day to better prepare students for these jobs.

There are four pathways under the Criminal Justice / Law Enforcement Cluster:

•  Principals of Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement
•  Law Enforcement 1
•  Corrections
•  Law Enforcement 2
