Law Enforcement Extension (Continuing Education)

Short Term

The Law Enforcement Extension Program offers classes to area law enforcement officers. These classes provide re-certification for current skills and opportunities to enhance an officer's skills in new areas. The program offers many specialized classes based upon requests and the needs of the law enforcement agencies we serve.

Sworn Law Enforcement Officers are exempt from tuition fees for occupational extension classes offered by the Law Enforcement Extension Program. Members of law enforcement agencies who do not have arrest authority will be required to pay tuition fees. Due to the nature of the information provided in these classes most are not open to persons not currently employed in the Criminal Justice field.
