Meet Robin

"It takes a courageous person to consider a lifetime role of protecting his or her fellow citizens. The law enforcement programs at Southern State will fully prepare that courageous student to enter a challenging yet rewarding career. Law enforcement personnel offer valuable contributions to making our communities safer places to live. But education doesn't end with a degree or certificate from Southern State; it's an ongoing journey. We encourage our graduates to enter their careers with enthusiasm, and always seek new education and training opportunities."


Gavin Moore | Southern State Graduate

Gavin decided to attend 吃瓜不打烊 because the campus was close to his home. According to Gavin, the professors were really great. Gavin says, "They were a big reason I actually continued on with the program and finished my degree."

"I decided to pursue a career in Law Enforcement because I love the idea of helping people and making the community a better place for others. I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in this career field. I never had a professor that I did not like, and the police academy instructors were some of the coolest people I have ever met.

"Southern State is a great place for people to start the path of their future careers!"

Southern State seeks to fill specific post-secondary educational needs for the residents of southern Ohio. The College cannot meet this commitment without guidance and constructive input from members of the community. To foster this vital involvement, the College has established advisory committees. Persons involved in business, public service, and industry volunteer their service and expertise for the purpose of guiding and updating educational programs offered by the College. The advisory committees help to ensure that general and technical education is of finest quality and is always attuned to community needs.
