The Capstone project comprises the demonstrated culmination of skills acquired throughout the M.S. in Professional Practice in Public Safety Program. The project will be conducted by a team of Graduate Degree Candidates (GDCs) responsible for consulting with a public safety agency. The team will perform a needs assessment and will identify and respond to a specific need that correlates to the acquired skills of the GDC’s with the goal of improving professional practice within the host agency. Upon completion of the project, the team will present and defend the project to a panel comprised of representatives of the host agency, the program chairperson, and a graduate degree committee.
