Courses in this program of study are designed to prepare students to apply technical skills and develop the knowledge necessary to protect life and property, and uphold the law within a jurisdiction. This Arlington Police Department and the Arlington Independent School District joined together in a cooperative effort to design and implement a high school police academy within the Arlington ISD. The result of this collaboration is a yearlong program that will enable participants to earn a total of two elective high school credits and be provided a hands-on learning experience for those wanting to pursue a career as a police officer. Students will have the opportunity to earn the 911 Dispatch Certification.
