The Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security cluster helps prepare students for careers in planning, managing, and providing legal, public safety, protective services and homeland security, including professional and technical support services.
Renewed national interest in public safety and security should help expand opportunities for employment in the Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security cluster. Numerous job openings will stem from employment growth attributable to the desire for increased corporate, industrial and homeland security. Also, a more security-conscious society and concern about drug-related crimes should contribute to the increasing demand.
