Criminal Justice Technology
The Criminal Justice Technology Curriculum is designed to provide knowledge of criminal justice systems and operations. Study will focus on local, state, and federal law enforcement, judicial processes, corrections, and security services. The criminal justice system’s role within society will be explored.
Emphasis is on criminal justice systems, criminology, juvenile justice, criminal and constitutional law, investigative principles, ethics, and community relations. Additional study may include issues and concepts of government, counseling, communications, computers, and technology.
Employment opportunities exist in a variety of local, state, and federal law enforcement, corrections, and security fields. Examples include police officer, deputy sheriff, county detention officer, state trooper, intensive probation/parole surveillance officer, correctional officer, and loss prevention specialist.
Because the use of computers is integral to this curriculum, some courses are delivered in an online format.
In addition to the program at the Pinehurst campus, the Criminal Justice Technology Program is offered at the Sandhills Hoke Center in Raeford, NC, on a special schedule to accommodate the special needs of students who may be employed as law enforcement officers, telecommunicators, detention officers, or correctional officers.
