Law Enforcement Agencies Speak to Roma High School Students


The Principles of Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security Course at Roma High School under the direction of Officer Rene Garza has been very busy in not only exposing students to the curriculum, but has also brought in several agencies to discuss career opportunities in their respective law enforcement fields.


Agents Rudy Reyes and Guadalupe Pena from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency and Troopers Carlos Alvarez and Gerardo Arredondo from the Department of Public Safety recently talked with students about agency requirements and experience, salaries and benefits, and also shared pictures and videos of the Border Patrol and DPS academies.


Amanda Garza from the Adult Probation Office also recently spoke to students about the responsibilities of the Probation Office and the duties of a Probation Officer.


Thank you to the agents from the above mentioned agencies for taking time to speak to the students. Also, thank you to Officer Rene Garza for bringing in different agencies to speak to the students about the varied careers available in the law enforcement field.
