This is part of an approved Police Academy course for the State of Michigan. Students are introduced to the skills and abilities required to become a law enforcement officer. The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) Policy and Procedure Manual, WCC Police Academy Daily Rules and Regulations, and the WCC Student Handbook will govern student conduct. The Police Academy is structured as an adult learning experience and will require significant self-discipline on the part of the student. Students will be held to this same code of ethics as sworn law enforcement officers. Students must complete both CJT 229A and CJT 229B to be eligible to sit for the MCOLES exam. This course contains material previously taught in CJT 221A.
Level I Prereq: Academic Reading and Writing Levels of 6; minimum 45 credits with 2.0 GPA and pass MCOLES tests; consent required
