|Grossmont College is a community college located in
San Diego county. We have approximately 19,000 students and a
catalog of diverse courses, including many in Administration of
Justice. One of our featured programs is Forensic Technology, which
is one of a few such programs in the U.S.! In the Forensic
Technology program, we prepare students to work with police crime
labs in a variety of roles and offer such courses as Fingerprinting,
Crime Scene Photography, and Forensic Technology.
We have five major emphases: Law Enforcement, Corrections, Legal
and Court Systems Management, Forensic Technology and Security
Management. We also have a P.O.S.T. approved Police Academy &
Dispatch Academy; Corrections Academy
and Security Academy.
We have enjoyed a successful relationship with local police
departments and crime labs and place our students in internship or
work experience programs. Many of our students have become police
officers, correctional officers, security managers, investigators,
dispatchers and forensic specialists. A list of our former students
reads like a Who’s Who of Public Safety and Security. Many have
become Police Chiefs, Captains, Lieutenants, and Sergeants, as well
as agents or officers with the FBI, U.S. Customs, DEA, Border
Patrol, State Police, Highway Patrol, Corporate Security and many
other agencies, departments and businesses.
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.
