Description:Modern policing requires officers to possess highly developed social and communication skills, practical law enforcement knowledge, technical skills, and the ability to connect with the communities they serve and protect. In this program you will build these skill sets while gaining vital community outreach experience through a unique program with the opportunity to work with disenfranchised, vulnerable and/or marginalized populations. Training also focuses on mental health strategies in policing related to community members and officers; students will earn their Mental Health First Aid certificate in their course of study. In addition, the program will enable students to make community and global connections that provide transferrable skills that many employers are seeking.
