Do you enjoy being part of a team, taking on leadership roles, and/or defending other people’s rights? Then a career in Law Enforcement may be for you. You might be a good fit for the Law Enforcement program if you like to drive vehicles, responsibly handle firearms, research and investigate, deal with physically challenging circumstances, or interact with lots of different people.
The Law Enforcement program will help prepare you for an exciting future career in Law Enforcement positions ranging from local police officers, county sheriff deputies, State Police, and Natural Resource Officers to name a few. There are also many Federal Law Enforcement careers such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Military Branch Police and Home Land Security positions.
In this program you will have the opportunity to participate in live scenario application training, job shadows, law enforcement and criminal justice agency visits, community service opportunities, and hands on operation and use of law enforcement technology and equipment. You will also explore and gain additional law enforcement knowledge through guest speakers from a variety of law enforcement agencies, field trips and post-secondary visits.
So, if you are a very self-driven individual who can work independently as well as part of a team to accomplish established Agency goals and are willing to “Serve and Protect” the public then Law Enforcement would be a good career choice for you.
This one-year program is open to both juniors and seniors and is located at the Capital Area Career Center in Mason.
