Law Enforcement Training & Law Enforcement Schools

 

At its best, Law Enforcement is both a dangerous and honorable profession.  Uniformed Police Officers have general Law Enforcement Duties, including maintaining regular patrols and responding to calls for service. They may direct traffic at the scene of an accident, investigate a burglary, or give first aid to an accident victim.   

 

Detectives are Plainclothes Investigators who gather facts and collect evidence for criminal cases. Some are assigned to interagency task forces to combat specific types of crime. They conduct interviews, examine records, observe the activities of suspects, and Participate in Raids or Arrests.

 

State Police Officers patrol highways to enforce motor vehicle laws and regulations.  They will also get involved in investigating crimes of a statewide nature. At the scene of accidents, they may direct traffic, give first aid, and call for emergency equipment

 

The Department of Homeland Security employs numerous Law Enforcement Officers under several different agencies, including Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the U.S. Secret Service.
