Law Enforcement

About the Law Enforcement Program


Many law enforcement agencies now require a two-year degree or minimum of 60 hours of college credits for employment. The Associate Degrees in Criminal Justice are designed to provide students with the basic knowledge and physical skills required for a career in law enforcement or prepare students to transfer to a university to complete their course of study. The Criminal Justice program also offers a one-year certificate, which requires 32 hours of Criminal Justice courses intended to strengthen the student's ability to understand the job requirements and functions of a law enforcement officer. Students will have the opportunity to receive hands-on training and work with some of the latest equipment used in law enforcement, such as the FATS system and investigative test equipment designed for officers to use in the field.
