CCC to offer classes at safety education center

Carroll Community College, through an agreement with the Police and Correctional Training Commissions, is expanding to offer evening classes this fall in the new Public Safety Education and Training Center in Sykesville.

A new agreement will allow the college to fulfill a long-standing goal to hold classes in South Carroll, the fastest-growing part of the county.

The college will use four technology-enhanced classrooms Monday through Thursday from late August to December, and February to May. Advising, books and other student services will still be handled at the Washington Road campus in Westminster.

The college and police commissions have worked together for the past several years to provide the Police Entry Level Training Program (known informally as the Police Academy) to cadets. Both credit and continuing education classes will be offered at the Sykesville location.
