Our law enforcement programs offer basic courses oriented toward meeting specific entry-level training needs for criminal justice and state regulatory agencies. These courses are certified by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) and/or California Commission on Standards and Training for Corrections (STC). Most courses are in an intensive short-term format. Graduates from these programs may be eligible for employment in municipal, county or state law enforcement agencies specializing in law enforcement, corrections, and probation.
