WITC extends Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement Program

Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College announces that its Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement program has recently become a two-year program.

"The addition of the second year of the degree program allows our students to gain a full associate degree without having to take on the problems and expense of moving to another school for completion of their studies," said Pat McNally, Associate Dean of the Criminal Justice program at WITC. "It will allow the northwestern region of the state to provide a full associate degree program in Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement locally.

Available at WITC’s Rice Lake campus, the Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement program will prepare students for a position as a law enforcement officer (state, municipal, or county), correctional officer, or for positions in retail, commercial, industrial security, and private investigation agencies. The program provides the student with necessary skills to perform as a police officer at municipal, county, or state governmental levels. The program also offers the officer already in active service an opportunity to improve skills and earn the associate degree.

"The Wisconsin Technical College System has monitored our needs assessment and planning process and ultimately authorized WITC to proceed with the program expansion in order to meet the training needs of our area's law enforcement agencies," McNally said.
