The undergraduate concentration in Law Enforcement provides a detailed, comprehensive, and advanced education in the field of law enforcement. The CJLE program is designed to meet the needs of students who wish to work in law enforcement or who are currently working in the field and would like to enrich their professional development.

The CJLE program applies a multi-faceted approach to higher education that:

Enhances analytical thinking and inclusive, relevant approaches to learning and the development of professional skills; and

Focuses on specific, yet comprehensive, substantive areas of law enforcement that students can apply to their current or future careers in the field.

Students completing the CJLE concentration will have the knowledge and skills to evaluate and respond to a variety of situations in law enforcement professions that require technical, analytic, substantive, and ethical decision-making. They will understand the different environments and contexts in which law enforcement carry out their responsibilities.
