LAPSEN Law and Public Safety Database
A Department of Justice COPS grant was used to establish a database of programs preparing youth for careers in law and public safety. The database is to be shared with agencies who can employee those youth. It will also serve as a way for agencies to reach out and partner with local programs. The information provided will not be available to the general public, nor made available for commercial purposes.

Programs included in the database include high school career and technical programs, technical college programs, Public Safety Cadets, Explorer Posts, and local career programs.

If a school has two programs - such as a fire program and a law enforcement program - please fill this out for each program separately. If a city has a fire and a law enforcement Explorer Post - please fill this our for each program separately.
