The Law Enforcement Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree is designed to prepare students for two primary objectives: (1) gain the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively function as a peace officer and citizen and (2) develop skills and characteristics necessary to successfully pass the Minnesota Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Board examination and gain employment.
This program combines academic instruction with a high degree of hands-on training essential to develop appropriate skills. For example, students learn traffic laws in the classroom setting and apply the learning in a hands-on setting that utilizes actors, patrol vehicles, on-board computers, and radio. The equipment used in class is the same that is commonly used by the law enforcement profession.
