Criminal Justice Certificates

Thanks to the fact that many citizens are more concerned with local, regional and national safety than ever before, there has been an increase in the demand for professionals in the field of justice and law enforcement. If you were thinking about pursuing a certificate in criminal justice, you should know that it will open the doors for you to earn a higher salary as a public or private security office, or a member of the Sheriff’s department. You will learn the basics of local laws and regulations, including how to detain and prosecute violators to the fullest extent of the law. There are many ways to pursue your certificate in criminal justice, including online programs from the University of Bridgeport or University of Massachusetts Online.

Although it should only be the start of your law enforcement education, the certificate is a great place to start your advanced education. And will make you eligible for entry level jobs in security organizations. Be sure to research education requirements for specific criminal justice field careers at our criminal justice career center page.

Those that seek out this level of education should know that they are greatly increasing the chances that they will be eligible for higher salaries than applicants with no relevant certificate, and might possibly earn up to $6,000 a year more than they could without the certificate.
