Applied Studies: Law Enforcement
Students enrolled in this program will earn an AS in Law Enforcement from Minneapolis Community and Technical College and a BA/BS in Applied Studies from North Central University.

Learning includes the Minnesota statutes and the U.S. Constitution, criminal and traffic law, and training for the main skills used in daily enforcement, such as handling and using firearms, decision shooting, armed and unarmed defense tactics, high-speed and pursuit driver techniques, low- and high-risk traffic stop tactics, in-progress crimes and domestic violence tactics, criminal investigation and arrest procedures, traffic law enforcement, and accident investigation.
