PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

New Vision Criminal Justice is a one-year program offered to high school seniors. Located at the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department, students study the components of law enforcement, the judiciary and correction systems, causes and prevention of crime and current topics of interest including community relations, gun control, drug enforcement, cybercrime and capital punishment. Class visitations by community and career professionals will occur in addition to internship and job shadowing opportunities. Community service projects and real-world exposure to the criminal justice system is an integral component of this career building program. Students will also fulfill their English 12, participation in government, and economics requirements toward graduation. An annual Washington, D.C., trip includes visits to the Police Memorial, the Smithsonian Institute, Congress and Capitol Hill, and the Bureau of Engraving & Printing. 

Eligibility requirements: Interested students must be in their senior year of high school, in good academic standing and on target with all graduation requirements. Eligible candidates should exhibit self-motivation, enthusiasm and maturity, and must be willing to work both independently and as a team member in diverse settings.
