Even in the military, Joshua Jones couldn’t recall a training experience quite like what he experienced while working toward his National Park Service-Seasonal Law Enforcement Training (NPS-SLET) certification this past fall at Southwestern Community College’s Public Safety Training Center.
“In the military, they were more animated and angry,” said Jones, who lives in Illinois and works at the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Mo. “The first thing I noticed at SCC is that the instructors are amazing. I never had trainers that talented. Every session we went into, they brought in legitimate experts in that particular field.”
