    SUCCESS PROFILE

    All areas of public safety work together and often combine

    their resources. In times of crisis or emergency, job

    responsibilities for various personnel frequently overlap and

    cross over traditional career boundaries. It is imperative that

    students become proficient in all career areas during their time

    in this course. A successful student and respected employee

    will possess a high degree of motivation, self-discipline and

    gain skills in all areas of the protective services. Each student

    will be required to wear a security uniform, black shoes and

    have a wristwatch with a second hand. Physical conditioning

    will be an asset in this career area. He/she should have an

    interest in public safety, possess an open mind and be

    non-judgmental. Students will be challenged on a daily basis to

    problem solve and work with enthusiasm in a detail oriented

    field.
