Persons interested in careers in criminal justice will
receive theoretical and practical information in the
program. Criminal Justice is becoming increasingly complex
and important. Today's criminal justice employees must be
trained to meet the challenges of our changing society. The
Criminal Justice Program courses, as well as support and
general education courses, will prepare the student for a
position as a law enforcement officer (state, county,
municipal), correctional officer, juvenile detention
office, police dispatcher, or many other occupational areas
in the criminal justice system.
In order to become certifiable as a police officer in
Wisconsin, the State of Wisconsin-Law Enforcement Standards
Board (LESB) requires successful completion of a 520 hour
training curriculum (police academy training).
