To Protect, Serve and Save Lives
Service to protect and help others is an honorable calling. Every community needs peace officers to maintain order. The daily news and news feeds illustrate how critical it is in today’s society to have a constant supply of well-trained, confident agents of public safety. While the need for peace officers is steady, the need for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and paramedics is projected to grow by 13 percent from 2012 to 2022.
