Schools Offering Online Law Enforcement programs

Law enforcement officers work to enforce a jurisdiction's laws and maintain public order. This may include patrolling an area, tracking down and arresting a suspect, directing or controlling traffic, writing incident reports, collecting evidence, answering calls for assistance, conducting surveillance, and helping prosecute court cases.

Law enforcement officers must be physically fit and trained in self-defense, law enforcement procedures, laws and regulations, emergency situations, first aid, firearms use, investigations, and other subjects and skills that police and law enforcement officers must master – most often learned at police academies.

However, some agencies and departments will pay for police officers and law enforcement officials to obtain a degree in a field such as criminal justice or police science and then reward them with higher pay. Other departments, such as the FBI, require applicants to have at least a college degree and some work experience before being considered for a position.
