Jordan said the popularity of the program at the Century Career Center mirrors the popularity of the field in the professional world, as there are a lot of careers to choose from. He added it is important the students consider post-secondary education or the military after high school, as many law enforcement jobs require applicants to be at least 21 years of age.
“This way, once they’re 21, they have the experience,” he said.
The variety of career choices is one of the factors that drew Pablo Morales, a senior at Logansport High School, to enroll in criminal justice classes at the career center.
“What we learn here is what it will be like after high school if we go into the field,” he said.
