The field of criminal justice is more than just law enforcement. The Criminal Justice system consists of three sub-systems; police, courts, and corrections. At Sheridan College and Gillette College the student will be exposed to all aspects of the criminal justice system with four major areas of concentration and five certificate programs. The transferable degree and associated certificate programs, including the new crime scene investigation certificate, assures the successful student marketable skills in the fields of law enforcement; corrections, both adult and juvenile; victimology, both adult and juvenile; and security.
In depth background investigations, polygraph, and psychological examinations, and aptitude testing is required in most criminal justice professions. Check with the Criminal Justice department for details on criminal justice employment restrictions.
