I plan to use this site to create several assignments in the beginning of the semester to help students identify information about the job.
In 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance created the VALOR Program to help prevent violence against law enforcement officers and ensure officer resilience and survivability following violent encounters during the course of their duties.
VALOR provides critical nationwide training and technical assistance to sworn state, local, and tribal law enforcement officers through a variety of delivery mechanisms and conducts and disseminates analysis of violent encounters in various forms, including after-action reviews and lessons learned publications
I will use this site to introduce students to the latest efforts to help protect officers.
The National Institute of Justice — the research, development and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice — is dedicated to improving knowledge and understanding of crime and justice issues through science. NIJ provides objective and independent knowledge and tools to reduce crime and promote justice, particularly at the state and local levels.
I will use this site to provide students access to many resources.
The Innocence Project is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice. – See more at: http://www.innocenceproject.org/about-innocence-project#sthash.QUfdzB9g.dpuf
I will use this site to create lessons for students.
