Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement

Associate in Applied Science (AAS)

Are you a technical and analytical person with good interpersonal and conflict resolution skills? Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement may be right for you!

Consider a profession where creative, hard work yields tangible results. The Mid-State Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement program prepares you for the variety of challenges you will encounter in law enforcement. Emphasis is placed on professionalism, integrity, and quality work performance, with a significant focus on high ethical and moral standards.

Trained professionals are in demand in both public and private law enforcement. You may also be eligible to enter the law enforcement Certification Track. Successful completion of the Certification Track provides the education and hands-on training required by the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Standards Board to become certifiable as a law enforcement officer.

Anyone with a felony conviction or a domestic abuse conviction cannot become a law enforcement officer without a governor’s pardon. A lengthy criminal history, mental illness, lack of physical fitness preventing the applicant from performing essential job functions, or numerous moving traffic violations may hinder opportunities for employment.
