Making the transition from being a police officer patrolling the streets to an administrator managing others requires skills that are not necessarily learned on the job. As one of the top criminal justice universities, Saint Leo fills this void by offering a command school program for law enforcement personnel.
Saint Leo understands that emergencies are a part of life, especially in this field, which is why it brings these classes to the local law enforcement agencies. Not only does this make it convenient, but it also helps keep the program affordable since participants do not incur travel, lodging, or meals costs.
The next session will be held at the Manatee county sheriff’s department in May. The Command School includes six courses that are offered over two semesters for either undergraduate or graduate credit hours. This program began in 2005 and has been offered in sheriff’s departments of over 13 counties in Florida.
The courses offered in the spring semester include; legal issues in criminal justice administration, critical incidents in criminal justice and leadership applications.
In the fall, the following classes are offered; organization and administration, organizational design and function and media relations and ethical issues in criminal justice.
The instructors all have extensive experience:
As one of the top criminal justice universities, Saint Leo knows the importance of having access to current information. They provide law enforcement officers who complete this Command School with a variety of ways to continue their education such as attending classes online, at the school’s regional centers or by attending the week-long special topic course offers that are held at various sites throughout the country. Saint Leo has been educating those interested in law enforcement for over 40 years, offering a bachelors in criminal justice degree as well as a master’s program.
