Recently, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and the Harris County Board of Commissioners donated a vehicle to Harris County High School (HCHS).
The HCHS public safety program, a pathway in the CTAE (Career, Technology, Agriculture, Engineering) program, received a 2012 Tahoe law enforcement vehicle.
“The vehicle will be used to assist in the learning of patrol operations that are used every day in our community. When I went to Sheriff Jolley and expressed that my program could use a patrol vehicle, it happened almost immediately,” said HCHS Public Safety Teacher Seth Bierman. “This vehicle is a piece of the puzzle that will help bridge the gap between the classroom and career readiness. Sheriff Jolley truly supports my students in Law and Public Safety, and all students here at Harris County High School. We are so fortunate to have such amazing support from the community here in Harris County.”
Sheriff Jolley commented, “We are proud to be a part of this program. With any luck, one or two young Harris County students will choose Law Enforcement as a career field. However, all those in the course will come to understand the system better.”
“This is a great example of a public/private partnership,” said Harris County Manager Randy Dowling. “We were very glad to be able to provide a vehicle for training as the school continues to develop our future workforce.”
