Clear Lake Campus offers Administration of Justice classes

CLEARLAKE – For the first time, Yuba College, Clear Lake Campus is offering Peace Officer and Corrections Officer courses this fall semester.

To meet the growing demand for correctional and peace officers, Clear Lake Dean, Bryon Bell, worked with the Yuba College Public Safety department and the Lake County Sheriff’s Office to implement this program for Lake County residents.

“This program is a great way for students to begin their climb up the law enforcement career ladder. In working with representatives from the Sheriff’s Department I learned that there are numerous well-paying job opportunities for the students that complete this program,” said Bell.

The Peace Office program (AJ-54RA and RB) meets the Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).

In the RA portion students will learn about the laws of arrest, search and seizure, and arrest and control techniques. This class is taught every day (Monday-Friday); 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Aug. 20-24.

This class is followed up with the RB portion-Peace Officer Orientation-Firearms. This class also is POST certified. It will be taught Monday through Wednesday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A portion of the class will be held in the classroom and a portion will be held at Highland Springs Range. This class will be held August 27, 28 and 29.
