    This program prepares you for careers in the policing field. The class will focus on police procedures that are standard to a new police officer and the steps that are necessary to continue into a policing career.

A police background check is required to participate in job shadows, internships, and ride-alongs at local police departments.

  • What will my classes be like?

    Have you ever seen Chicago PD or CSI on television and wondered how the crime was solved or why the judge withdrew evidence? You will learn the legal process starting from the investigation, to the arrest, and the laws behind it all. You will practice police tactical response maneuvers, courtroom proceedings through mock trials, and collecting evidence at a crime scene. Find out which law enforcement profession is right for you!
