The Law & Criminal Justice program at Portage Lakes Career Center is committed to providing students with the quality education and training needed to perform effectively in a wide variety of career positions within the criminal justice and legal fields. Training will focus on the knowledge and enforcement of the law and the protection of life and property in both the public and private sectors.

Career Technical Skills
Industry Recognized credentials
PLCC Law & Criminal Justice is a full time program for high school juniors and seniors. Students will have the opportunity to visit and apply during the sophomore year. Class size is limited to 20 students.
College Credit Potential
All programs at PLCC have the potential for either direct articulated credits at select colleges and/or universities or are able to acquire college credits through career technical assurance guides (CTAGs) in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
On The Job Training
During the senior year, students who have met the requirements and have received a recommendation by their program instructor, have the opportunity to go on School-to-Work Job Placement. We work with our students and local employers to place them in a job that is related to their program of study, giving them real-life experience while simultaneously earning school credit.
We take pride in our facility and welcome the opportunity to show it off! You would never buy a car without looking at it first. Choosing the place to give you a head start on a successful path in life should be no different. We invite you to schedule a tour of our beautiful campus. We’re pretty sure you’ll be impressed!
If you are a high school student, please note that you will have several opportunities to visit PLCC during your sophomore year.
Once we receive your request, a PLCC staff member will follow up directly. Thank you for your interest, we look forward to seeing you soon.
