Spring term, CCC criminal justice student Sedrik Taylor-Reavis was busy analyzing a crime scene.
Actually, it was a mock crime scene. But the skills he used were real. Ones he will use in a future law enforcement job – collecting fingerprints, sorting through evidence, taking photos, conducting an investigation, and completing a police report. Analyzing the mock crime scene was all part of Sedrik’s final project in his favorite class, Criminal Investigation Three.
Sedrik is on his way to achieving his career goal of becoming a police officer thanks to the great classes, skills training and cadet experience he is gaining at CCC. Sedrik chose to attend CCC because its Criminal Justice program has an outstanding reputation. Many of the courses are taught by law enforcement personnel and lawyers – people who are working in the field.
Sedrik’s college education is further enhanced by his work as student Campus Safety cadet, a position he applied and trained for. “It’s great. I’m learning first-hand from the officers things I can’t learn in a classroom.”
What’s next on Sedrik’s education and career path? After completing an associate’s degree at CCC and studying Spanish, he plans to transfer to a university to earn a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. He will be well-equipped to apply for a position as a police officer.
