About the Criminal Justice Technology Program

Crime-solving techniques and procedures have expanded and evolved significantly. Professionals in the field now recognize the importance of combining crime scene analysis, physical evidence, witnesses, and records for successful criminal investigations. Today, crimes are most often solved through teamwork, using a system that depends on advanced investigative skills and the ability to properly process crime scenes by identifying, collecting, and preserving all relevant physical evidence and information.

The Associate of Criminal Justice Technology degree program lays the groundwork for students interested in a criminology career, whether they enter the field directly or pursue additional studies, such as police academy training or a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. Coursework covers a variety of topics, ranging from argument-based research to civil liability, and programs generally provide significant hands-on training.

Employment opportunities exist in a variety of local, state, and federal law enforcement, corrections, and security fields. Examples include police officer, deputy sheriff, county detention officer, state trooper, intensive probation/parole surveillance officer, correctional office, and loss prevention specialist.
