    Law & Public Safety Students Learn About Federal Career Opportunities

    OCEAN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY The Ocean County Vocational Technical School's Law & Public Safety and Homeland Security programs offer a comprehensive training program for area high school students with a serious interest in pursuing a career in law enforcement. The program is located at the Ocean County Fire and First Aid Training Center, in Waretown New Jersey, where students have access to a state-of-the-art training facility and benefit from the many law enforcement divisions who train here. Recently agents from both the federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigative Unit (IRSCSU) visited the Waretown facility to speak to students about career opportunities beyond those of uniformed officers. OCVTS Law & Public Safety Instructor Robert Voskanyan noted,"these students are the futue of law enforcement. It is important for them to be aware of the mulititude of careers available in this field. They need to understand the duties and responsibilities as well as the educational and physical requirements of their career choices."

    Special Agents Robert Glantz and Kevin Lumberg from the IRS spoke about the Criminal Investigative Unit, which is comprised of about 2500 agents nationwide. They spoke about their duties, training, investigative techniques and their roles in crime prevention.

    Special Agent Barbara Woodruff of the FBI then spoke about her career path and what it takes to become an FBI agent. She stressed that investigations do not happen as seen on TV but rather involve long periods of cooperation from many different departments. She outlined many of the departments within the FBI which provide career opportunities for people with professional experience in fields such as science and technology, medical training, accounting, and forensics, just to name a few.

    The Law & Public Safety Program at Ocean County Vocational Technical School explores the role of law and public safety in the United States and career opportunities in various law enforcement agencies. The functions and day-to-day activities of law and public safety professionals from local, county, state, and federal agencies are examined. Successful completion of this two-year high school program prepares students for First Responder and Special Police Officer I certification.
