About the Leopards


Making a Difference

At the High School for Law Enforcement and Public Safety, we provide our students with a state-of-the-art facility.  We work in collaboration with the New York City Police Department and Police Athletic League to positively impact the community. Our school offers a challenging academic program introducing careers in law, law enforcement, and public safety.  By fully integrating the themes of law enforcement and public safety throughout the educational program, students come to understand how all areas of study are interrelated and how their educational experience supports their career choice.  Founded in 2003, the School is located in Queens, NY, and reflects the diverse backgrounds and cultures of the area. We’re extremely proud of our students and staff, who are always eager to learn, create, and grow together. Give us a call if you need more information.
