Criminal Justice, Law Enforcement, and State Corrections

Criminal justice is defined as the system of practices and institutions of governments directed at upholding control of society, deterring and mitigating crime, or penalizing those who violate laws with criminal penalties and rehabilitation.  A career in Human Services can be a rewarding way to contribute to and help keep your community safe. North Central's criminal justice degrees are comprehensive and will prepare students for career opportunities in law enforcement, the judicial system, or corrections. We are also pleased to offer law enforcement aide and state corrections certificates.
