The Protective Services Program is intended to present a comprehensive public safety education to students interested in pursuing a career or volunteer service in the fire, emergency medical, law enforcement or emergency management services. Since all areas of public safety must work together, and responsibilities often overlap career boundaries, the student will be expected to meet a minimum level of proficiency in all areas of the training program. The program also serves as a springboard into health-care, legal, industrial safety and public administration education careers. The primary focus in this program is personal safety and the interrelationship between public safety agencies.
