Public Safety Cadets
Blog Detail

State Associations Blog
State and Regional Associations are critical to foster education, communication and mentoring of public safety education to young adults.  PSC works to leverage this valuable experience and outreach to strengthen PSC units throughout the region and nation.  PSC collaborates with these established associations to construct the certification criteria.  PSC does not require a participation fee from these associations.  Adult Mentors that are the president or chair of a PSC certified state or regional association will be ex-officio members of the national committee.

This blog space below is for PSC members to share pictures, videos and stories related to events happening in their State, Region and State Association.  A blog space for our PSC Units to showcase their best practices, ideas and concerns is located in the Resource Center.
