Cumberland Perry AVTS is honored to experience phenomenal community support from Occupational Advisory Committee members that facilitate student achievement.  This year Cumberland Perry AVTS would like to recognize Cumberland County for extraordinary participation in the Criminal Justice program.  Cumberland County has shared various educational instruction opportunities over the years with Criminal Justice students that many people are not fortunate enough to ever observe.  

The Sheriff’s Office has provided guest instruction regarding firearms training and student observations with K-9 situations.  They have assisted with the senior NOCTI exam at CPAVTS and provided students with a job shadow or ride-a-long opportunity.  They are active members of the Occupational Advisory Committee where they volunteer guidance and wisdom for the curriculum.  They provide student simulations and information at the annual CPAVTS Safety Day.  Even this year with COVID, they have focused on firearms safety with students.  Cumberland County Dept. of Public Safety has presented on their active involvement in the National Honor Guard and a virtual student field trip at the communications center.  The District Attorney’s Office communicates the Victim’s Rights during guest instruction and also offers job shadow experiences for students, all while serving on the Occupational Advisory Committee.  The Cumberland County Prison offers industry visits to see if that career pathway is a favorable one for students upon graduation.  Cumberland County Juvenile Probation and the Coroner’s Office are active participants in the CPAVTS Safety Day along with the yearly OAC meetings. Judge Martin’s office has devoted extensive time and resources to the Criminal Justice program by assisting with student interviews, law book donations, ride-a-longs, job shadows, and guest instruction.

Cumberland County has offered immeasurable knowledge, experience, advice, and occupation information to Cumberland Perry AVTS Criminal Justice students with preparation into all the Criminal Justice career pathways possible.
