According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the criminal justice field is projected to grow, which is why Rio Salado created its AJS program. Careers in this field include patrol officers, correctional officers, judicial law and court clerks, private investigators, private security and more.
“We are excited to give our students more options to prepare for local job opportunities. A highly-trained workforce benefits employees, employers and the greater community at large,” said Kwan.
Kwan said the AJS curriculum focuses on the law, constitutional rights, and civic responsibility. “Courses are taught by experienced practitioners and academic scholars who bring real-world application in the areas of law enforcement, the courts, and corrections,” said Kwan. “Students are assessed for critical thinking and communication skills, which better prepares them for a career in the criminal justice field and advanced academic studies at other colleges and universities."
