Savannah Technical College is beginning a new criminal justice program. It will focus mainly on continuing the education of police officers who are already in the field, but it will also be open to those who would like to begin a career in law enforcement. Chief Dan Flynn of Savannah PD says law enforcement must evolve with the times.
"The environment we exist in today is much different than it was just a few years ago," he said. "It's more complex and we have more challenges than we have ever had, and higher education for our law enforcement officers is certainly a desirable thing to help us meet those challenges."
The classes for this program will be held at Savannah Tech's new Crossroads Technology campus.
