Salina Tech’s three-semester Police Science program is designed to prepare students for entry into a variety of law-enforcement and related careers as security officers, corrections officers, and parole and probation officers.

Courses include “Criminal Procedures,” “Criminal Investigation,” “Criminal Justice Interviews and Report Writing” and “Law Enforcement Operations.”

The courses are taught by local law enforcement officers and attorneys — people with career experience in law enforcement and the courts — and are provided online to fit the schedules of busy people.

Plus, all credits earned in our Associate Degree in Police Science program will transfer to Fort Hays State University, where a student can complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice.
