TCC Heroes in Public Safety Celebration

Heroes in Public Safety Celebration

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. 

TCC’s Alumni & Friends Association will recognize these individuals who have achieved outstanding success and impacted their community in the Public Safety arena. This inaugural Heroes in Public Safety Celebration includes a Banquet and a Public Safety Day. Lifetime Achievement honorees and Hall of Fame inductees will be recognized at the banquet held in their honor on Friday, January 31st, 2020.

Merit Award will showcase Unsung Heroes, an Incident Award highlighting those in special circumstances and a Young Professional Award for those just beginning their career in the public safety field. The award winners will be celebrated during a FPSI Public Safety Day on Saturday, February 1st, 2020. Open to the public, this Public Safety Day will also include displays such as: Finger Printing kids & IDs, SWAT demonstrations, Fire Truck Pull and Alligator Wrestling. Learn more that our first Public Safety Day HERE.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for both the evening banquet event and for the Public Safety Day. Please consider helping us to honor these heroes. More information is HERE.
