Law Enforcement

We offer an emphasis in Law Enforcement to help prepare students who wish to become police officers.

The Law Enforcement Emphasis prepares or upgrades students who are interested in or already employed as uniformed or plain clothes peace officers at the federal, state, county or municipal levels.

Federal agencies include the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Drug Enforcement Administration, Secret Service, Customs and Border Patrol.

Police Car

State law enforcement opportunities are found with the California Highway Patrol and State Police. Numerous state special investigator positions are found with the Alcoholic Beverage Control, Consumer Affairs, Franchise Tax Board and Medical Fraud departments.

Virtually every law enforcement agency in San Diego County has hired police officers who are Grossmont College graduates.


How to Become a Police Officer


Students should be aware that prior felony convictions and misdemeanor domestic violence convictions are disqualifying for employment in public safety. Prior substance abuse and other disqualifiers may apply in specific positions related to law enforcement or forensics.
