Building on the police science one-year certificate, the associate of applied science in police science coursework provides an intense focus on criminal law, criminal justice, American government, investigative techniques, self-defense, first aid and police operations.
Police officers, detectives and special agents are responsible for enforcing statutes, laws, and regulations designed to protect life and property. Many law enforcement officers spend much of their time interviewing witnesses and suspects, apprehending fugitives and criminals, collecting evidence and providing testimony in court. Others spend most of their time patrolling a designated area to preserve the peace and to prevent crime.
The credits earned in this program also represent a portion of the required hours for Ohio Peace Officer Training, which qualifies you to take the required Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission (OPOTC) certification test for the position of police officer.
