Law Enforcement, AAS

LAWF.AAS.C44

Program Overview

The Law Enforcement curriculum is designed to meet the needs of two groups of students: those who plan to work with public or private agencies concerned with maintaining public safety and those already employed by law enforcement agencies who wish to update skills and knowledge. KCC also offers a Criminal Justice transfer program. Students should see the criminal justice/law enforcement coordinator to determine which program best suits their needs. Law Enforcement graduates are generally prepared to enter law enforcement programs at selected colleges and universities with junior status.
