Topics include: anatomy of a criminal case, race as a factor in the criminal justice system, use of force, gun violence, gangs, dating violence, human trafficking, marijuana, crime scene investigation and evidence, and distracted driving.  A career fair will be held at graduation.

Classes will be held twice a month in the evenings at TWO locations:

Thursdays - 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
