A spokesman for the College of Southern Idaho says that CSI is successful only if it's students are.
Doug Maughan says it's important for CSI to offer programs where students can get training for jobs like nursing, early childhood education, and welding.
But he says educating them for in–demand jobs is only part of the equation.
Maughan says tracking the students to see how they go from school to a job they're trained for is important.
But another CSI spokesperson says students may have to "move" to wherever the jobs are, as well.
CSI Law Enforcement Coordinator Don Halls says “Getting your education always makes you more marketable as a police officer. And also, you need to take a look at the job market. You might not necessarily be able to get a job in our local area, but closer down the road, some other communities are always looking.”
Hall says there's "always" a need for new law enforcement personnel – because many older police officers are often retiring.
He says overall – the prospects are good for people who want to get a job in law enforcement.
