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.
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
substance abuse and other disqualifiers may apply in specific
positions related to law enforcement or forensics.
