2018-2019 Catalog

Police I Certificate

The Police I Certificate is the first part, of a possible two part series of classes, designed for those who specifically desire to work in Law Enforcement. Many Departments Nationwide are having issues filling their ranks. Entrance exams for many departments include questions someone who has been out of school for a brief time, might not remember. This 30-Credit Hour program is designed to prepare someone to take those entrance exams and pass on the first try. The program will also cover a lot of the basics necessary to successfully work as an officer including report writing, basic investigations, and criminal law.  Eventually a second certificate may be created to help the officer looking to promote with management and human resource classes.
