St. Clair County Community College has a new program which provides practical, hands-on experience to students pursuing a degree in criminal justice. The Campus Patrol Cadet Program will offer part-time employment as a campus patrol cadet. SC4 Professor of Criminal Justice James Jones said, “The program will provide participants with a fully immersive, professional experience on the SC4 campus.” Jones also believes that the more experiences and scenarios that they can offer students, the better prepared those students will be to succeed after earning a degree. Cadets will be assisting permanent campus patrol staff. They will patrol campus, assist students, faculty, staff, and visitors on campus. The shifts will vary, and night and weekend work will be required. Preference for the program will be given to criminal justice students, but any student can apply with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Those interested in applying to the Campus Patrol Cadet Program may do so online.
