Heroes in Public Safety Celebration
Heroes in Public Safety Program
For many in public safety in the Big Bend, the road to their public safety career included study at Tallahassee Community College – the Florida Public Safety Institute (FPSI) and the Ghazvini Center for Health Care Education. FPSI houses the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy and the Tallahassee Fire Academy. It also offers programs for correction officers, security officers, telecommunications, and an on-line criminal justice online program. Specialty training programs include DUI and traffic safety training and mine safety and health training. The Ghazvini Center offers courses for Emergency Management Training (EMT).
As part of Tallahassee Community College’s unending support for our men and women in public safety, we are honoring those individuals who have made significant impact in this sector. In doing so, we have created a Heroes of Public Safety Recognition Program for those TCC alums who have graduated from one of our programs.
This year’s Program will include a Special Banquet Dinner Event (following all CDC guidelines). Lifetime Achievement honorees, Hall of Fame inductees and Chris Connell Merit Award winners will be recognized at the banquet held in their honor on Friday, January 29th, 2021.
