Law Enforcement Leadership

  • Certificate

About the Program

Law enforcement is a challenging and ever-evolving profession that requires skilled leaders and trained professionals.  Experienced police executives developed the UJ Accelerated Law Enforcement Leadership certificate program; experienced police executives are teaching the curriculum.  We know first-hand how challenging it can be to juggle career and family, to work nights and rotating shifts, and to go to court.  This course allows students to complete the certificate program and earn up to 12 college credits towards a degree – regardless of schedule.

Throughout the program, students will interact with veteran instructors and other criminal justice professionals like themselves – Deputy Chiefs, sergeants, professional staff, prosecutors, intelligence analysts, probation and parole officers, court administrators, and more.

Students will learn real-world, practical applications that they can implement immediately in their own careers, in their organizations, and in their communities.  Courses cover the most critical issues in 21st century policing: community engagement strategies and tactics, law enforcement response to mental health and officer wellness, and crisis management leadership.

Start with a single course or complete the entire certificate to accelerate your professional skills and earn credit toward an college degree.
