CRIMINAL JUSTICE: LAW ENFORCEMENT (Police Academy)

Assocaite of Applied Science

Program Webpage

Curriculum Worksheet

 

This program is designed for students seeking careers in entry level positions in law enforcement agencies in the State of Ohio. These agencies include city police departments, village or township police departments, or county Sheriff departments. While it is not required, it is an added benefit for those seeking careers in probation or parole.

The Ohio Revised Code enables North Central State College to incorporate The Ohio Peace Officer's Training Academy into the Criminal Justice Associate Degree program. The Academy requirements are included in eight of the required courses for an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice. Upon completion of the Academy requirements, the student will be eligible to take the State certification examination to become a peace officer in the State of Ohio.

Day and Night Academies are offered.  Both Academies begin each Fall Semester and end Spring Semester of each academic year.  Students must complete an Academy application in order to be considered for this program. Applications for both Academies are available the first Monday in April.  Applications are available in the office of Education, Professional and Public Services Division, Room 150B Fallerius, and the Human Resources Office, Room 156 Fallerius. The Academy must be completed on a full-time basis. In addition, students will be required to pass a physical examination, a state certification exam, and be capable of being hired by a law enforcement agency.

There is also a Police Academy Certificate option Available.

INDIVIDUALS WITH A FELONY AND/OR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CONVICTION ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ENTER THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE: LAW ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM. Students with misdemeanor convictions should seek advice from the Police Academy Commanders in the Criminal Justice program. A fingerprint check is required under this program. An acceptable Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) report is required to enter the Peace Officer Academy.

The Police Academy program of North Central State College has a reputation for excellence. Employers across Ohio have indicated our graduates are well prepared for the challenges they face as they embark on their profession. The Associate of Applied Business degree is awarded for the completion of this program.
 

 

Program Learning Outcomes

By the end of the police academy, students will be able to:

  1. Apply the core criminal justice foundation concepts of juvenile justice, criminology, constitutional law, corrections, private security, and U.S. Judicial and Criminal Justice systems in solving and defending logical arguments and applications in the field.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively in writing and speech.
