Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness

Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (HSEP); Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Pathway.

The Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness program of study is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) instructional program which integrates government, academia, and private sector training/educational initiatives to help students understand how the United States and its interests worldwide are protected against threats to public safety, both natural and manmade through effective communication, preparedness, detection, prevention, response and recovery.  The program provides rigorous and relevant instruction of homeland security and criminal justice topics that are aligned with state and national standards.  HSEP works closely with its post-secondary and government/law enforcement/industry partners to provide engaging experiences for all students.  The Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Pathway, also known as the “Administration of Justice Concentration” within the HSEP Program provides students with a broad background of the administration of justice in the United States. This program is for students in grades 9 through 12.
