For those who are truly interested in serving the needs of the community, police work is very rewarding. Whether dealing with the security concerns of a store merchant, talking with a senior citizen, or befriending a group of local kids, the job challenges are complex and fulfilling. Police work requires the building of relationships in the community and sensitivity towards the needs of people from all races, cultures and backgrounds.

This program prepares students to work within a community to ensure public safety through crime prevention and law enforcement.
