Law Enforcement Technology
The Law Enforcement Technology program is specifically designed to prepare the student to begin a career with local, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies. This educational program develops the skills needed to begin and progress through a career in law enforcement. Students seeking a career that requires a baccalaureate degree should refer to the Criminal Justice program. A student who completed this curriculum will receive an Associate of Applied Science degree. Upon completion of all degree requirements, qualified students receive academic endorsement of eligibility to sit for the state licensure exam to be a Texas Peace Officer.
The program also awards an Enhanced Skills Certificate upon completion of additional technical courses.
Texas commissioned peace officers may receive credit for the Peace Officer series and related courses (CJLE 1172, CJLE 1211, CJLE 1506, CJLE 1512, CJLE 1518, and CJLE 1524) upon completion of all other degree requirements.
