DENVILLE, NJ – The Morris County Vocational School District announced a new share time program, Criminal Justice, for Morris County high school students who are interested in law, public safety, corrections, and security. The program is a collaboration with the County College of Morris (CCM), according to the press release. Students will learn through college-level work and hands-on activities.
“We are thrilled to offer a new program for high school students who are interested in pursuing careers in criminal justice and public safety. We know many high school students will be excited to get a jump start in earning college credits in this subject area,” said Shari Castelli, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction at Morris County Vocational School District.
Coursework will include Intro to Public Safety Careers, Criminology, Intro to Policing, Intro to Emergency Management, Juvenile Delinquency, Criminal Law and Procedure, Forensic Science, and Cultural Diversity.
