Treasure Island Job Corps Center’s Security class was invited to San Francisco’s Superior Courthouse to learn more about the criminal justice system and how their trade works hand in hand with law enforcement.
The Security class was invited to the courthouse by Assistant District Attorney Tom, Ostly whom Treasure Island knows through its partnership with San Francisco Police Department (SFPD)’s Southern Station Community Police Advisor Board. The chilly morning started off with snacks and brief overview of the District Attorney’s responsibilities. Mr. Ostly gave the students real world examples of how loss prevention Security Guard’s report writing, and sometimes testimony, is used in the court system. Students spoke with a former San Francisco SWAT team member who encouraged them to work hard and become the next generators of leaders.
The day concluded with the students watching several preliminary hearing on loss prevention cases. One case allowed them to see an SFDP Officer give testimony about a robbery that had taken place at a local mall.
Several cadets ended the tour interested in the District Attorney’s internship program, as well as the loss prevention internship.
