The Criminal Justice—Law Enforcement program prepares graduates to enter a career in law enforcement, protective services, and corrections. Students learn to protect lives and property as well as preserve the peace while upholding the law. They study patrol procedures for residential, commercial, and industrial areas; learn to monitor traffic for safe and legal operations; understand how to properly issue warnings, citations, and make arrests.
Criminal Justice students also are trained to investigate accident and crime scenes and carry out long-term investigations leading to prosecution of criminal offenders. Further, they study strategies to maintain the confidence of the public by displaying professional conduct.
NOTE: The Wisconsin Technical College curriculum and requirements for the Criminal Justice—Law Enforcement program are being revised and updated, and will take effect with Fall 2014 program enrollees.
