What we do for you:
The Criminal Justice Department has been in existence since the late 1960s, and has educated tens of thousands of students interested in the professions of law enforcement, probation, corrections, the courts, and private security. The Criminal Justice Option Degree curriculum is designed to provide students with a solid base for additional study at a four-year institution and for entry level employment in federal, state, local, or private criminal justice agencies. Completion of the Law Enforcement Option Certificate exceeds the minimum P.O.S.T. requirements for entry level employment as peace officers. The Corrections Officer Program Certificate is designed to upgrade the skills and knowledge required for employed criminal justice professionals, and provide technical knowledge and skills based on new legal and or judicial rulings.
