Jasmine Ramirez, a Lincoln High School of Public Safety student, recently graduated from the San Diego Police Department Cadet Program. Jasmine originally was interested in pursuing art after high school, but changed her mind after taking Lincoln's Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Careers course.

“I decided I wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement and help people,” she said. Jasmine was excited to qualify for the program and start the rigorous application process.

The program is voluntary and provides great law enforcement experiences such as ride-alongs, assisting with security and traffic control, and undercover work.Students receive community service hours during the program as well. Jasmine plans on working towards becoming a sergeant in the Cadet Program and learning as much as she can.
