Criminal Justice. [FasTrak Specialization Integrated Technical and Academic Competency (ITAC).] 2002 Revision.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Career-Technical and Adult Education.
This curriculum for a criminal justice program is designed for students interested in pursuing a future in law enforcement or a related public safety profession. The criminal justice program in the career-technical and adult education center is a two-year curriculum that is divided into these 14 units: orientation; legal aspects; communication skills; human relations skills; occupational and health safety; defensive tactics; patrol; investigation; traffic enforcement; civil emergencies; prisoner transporting, booking, and handling; officer private security; specialized units; and optional corrections officer training. Each unit is composed of 2-5 objectives; a number of performance indicators are listed for each objective. This curriculum prepares graduates for employment opportunities beyond being a police officer--graduates may pursue further education to become a forensic science technician, probation officer, substance abuse counselor, state or federal investigator, United States and State Park Service professional or commissioned military officer. The program is designed so that immediately following high school completion, graduates can be employed as a private security officer in industrial, entertainment, or retail settings; radio dispatcher; or the military service; with postsecondary or specialized training, graduates can pursue a career as a corrections officer, police agency employee, state parole or probation employee, or in the military service.
