Law Enforcement

AA Transfer Degree and AAS Technical Degree

Law enforcement professionals must be up-to-date on criminal investigative processes, criminal law, civil liabilities and up-to-date procedures. The JWCC law enforcement program provides students with a better understanding of the criminal justice system and the functions and duties of police and helps to prepare them for careers in the field. Non majors also may choose to take certain courses to increase their understanding and knowledge.
