On Saturday, December 8th GC Tech's Police Science classes had the opportunity to visit the Police Youth Academy in Massapequa. Students participated in several courses such as Physical Training, Officer Safety, an Obstacle Course, and Crisis Awareness.
The Academy exposed our students to several different career pathways available within Law Enforcement through demonstrations of the following:
?" the Mounted Unit demonstrated on their horses how they assist the residents in Nassau County.
K-9 Unit - Officers demonstrated with their Police dogs how they assist the Police Department with searches and arrests.
Aviation Unit - Members from the Aviation Unit landed a helicopter at the Academy and lectured the students about their role in the Police Department.
All of the Police Science students received a certificate of completion at the end of their visit. GC Tech would like to thank the Police Youth Academy for their time, dedication, and support of our students.
