Gainful Employment


A Police Officer’s primary job is not to chase criminals through busy city streets traveling at high rates of speed all while being filmed by a camera crew for a television show. Although Police Officers are highly-trained individuals prepared to handle any situation involving crime, most of the time they are responding to calls involving domestic violence, parties, loud music, car accidents or fires.

Officers patrol areas on foot, motorcycle, bicycle, or in police cars, which allows them to accomplish a variety of objectives including discouraging crime, maintaining community relations by speaking with the public, and becoming familiar with the area where they work.

At Sheridan College the Associate of Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice allows students to choose from four areas of concentration: Law Enforcement; Corrections (adult and juvenile); Victim Advocacy (adult and child); and Security. The Corrections emphasis is designed to serve in-service correctional and detention officers or pre-service students who want to pursue a career in corrections or work with at risk youth. It is also designed for those who wish to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice or another Behavioral Science profession. 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.
