March 18, 2016 -- The 12 Heights High seniors in the Career and Technical Education Criminal Justice Program earned four college credits at a two day intensive training at the Tri-C Public Safety Training Center in Parma Heights on March 7 & 8.

The course work focused on forensics – the science of law enforcement. The sessions included making a cast of a shoe print, taking finger prints, practicing deductive reasoning and learning about career opportunities.

The seniors will also earn an additional four Tri-C credits by completing the Heights High Criminal Justice Program, under the direction of teacher and program Commander Johnnie Lemons.

In addition to the college credits, at the end of their senior year, the students will have earned 12 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) certifications that include Natural Disaster, Incident Control and Active Shooter management.

And, in April, the seniors will travel to Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy (OPOTA) facility in Richfield to take the test that will certify them as OPOTA trained peace officers.

“These certifications give the students a very strong resume to enter college or directly to the workforce,” said Mr. Lemons.

Heights High OPOTA trained peace officers who have graduated are currently working as Police Officers, security officers on a college campus (while completing their degree), private security officers and members of the US Military.
