“I liked that the program was very hands-on. We'd set up a crime scene outside and work it, learn how to take fingerprints or identify shoe prints. You go straight into the history of criminal justice and get hands-on practice. It kept me wanting to come back and learn everything.”

— Dylan Lee, Criminal Justice Class of 2017 | Deputy at Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office
