Law Enforcement & Police Officer Education Programs

Law Enforcement Police
Law Enforcement & Police Officer Education Programs Law enforcement career training programs are as diverse as the careers in the field. While many people take police jobs after graduating from a law enforcement degree program, others enter security, private investigation, corrections, the court system, and other related fields. Which degree should you choose? It depends on your career goals.

Law Enforcement Degree Programs

Associate degree programs in law enforcement can prepare you for entry-level jobs in security, investigation, or in a police department. These are a good choice if you want to get into the workforce as soon as possible, and don't mind taking some extra time to work your way up the ladder.

Your associate degree can also be used toward a bachelor's degree program in law enforcement. Bachelor's degree programs take four years total (fewer, if you apply associate degree credits). With a bachelor's degree, it is often easier to attain managerial positions in police departments, government facilities, and other law enforcement entities. It also allows entry into the F.B.I. and U.S. Secret Service.

A master's degree, which requires a bachelor's degree and can be completed in two years, can help you advance to highest levels of law enforcement. Your master's degree program might include classes in criminal justice, report writing, juvenile justice, and security management.
