Criminal Justice and Police Academy

Careers in law enforcement are varied and offer persons an opportunity for public service. The work is attractive to many because the job is challenging and involves much personal responsibility. Jobs in most local police departments will be excellent for qualified individuals, yet competition is expected.


Many use the skills learned in a Criminal Justice program to become:

  • Correctional officers

  • FBI

  • Deputies

  • Criminologists

  • Homeland security agents

  • Criminal investigators

  • Fish and Game Wardens

  • Detectives

  • State Police
